Cultural heritage is a basic human need.
Sada Mire is a Somalian archaeologist. She lived the first fifteen years of her life in Mogadishu, until 1991, when she settled in Sweden, as a result of the conflict in north-east Africa. She is founder and executive director of the Horn Heritage Organization. In her talk she demonstrates how culture is inseparable with the world around us and how communities can be enriched by it.
Sada participated in our inaugural course on First Aid to Cultural Heritage in Times of Conflict in 2011. She is also spearheading a project in partnership with ICCROM, the Swiss Government and CyArk on the digital recording of rock art in Somaliland.
