UNESCO and Sesame Workshop Bangladesh, producer of popular children’s programme Sisimpur, are collaborating to promote and popularise UNESCO’s three world heritage sites in Bangladesh among children – the Sundarbans, Mosque City of Bagerhat and Ruins of the Buddhist Vihara in Paharpur.

Under this collaboration, Sisimpur will popularise these three world heritage sites through Sisimpur’s entertaining and informative programme.

In addition to the production of edutainment content comprising Sisimpur’s popular characters, the initiative will also involve interactive activities to engage the audience more.

For this purpose, UNESCO and Sesame Workshop Bangladesh signed an agreement at UNESCO’s Dhaka office on Tuesday. UNESCO Bangladesh’s Officer-In-Charge, Susan Vize and Managing Director of Sesame Workshop Bangladesh, Mohammad Shah Alam were the key signatories present during the signing ceremony.

The Officer-in-Charge of UNESCO Bangladesh, Susan Vize said, “It is our great pleasure to establish a new partnership with Sisimpur on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of World Heritage Convention.”

He hoped that it will be the beginning of a colorful and fruitful journey with Halum, Tuktuki, Ikri and Shiku. The partnership promotes the World Heritage sites of Bangladesh for all Bangladeshi children, who are the future leaders of the nation.
