This project is framed inside the action plan started by the municipality of Chefchaouen after this city was nominated as emblematic community of the Mediterranean Diet (MD designated by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage). The main objectives are the creation of an Inventory of Mediterranean Diet intangible items; the promotion for the participation of the local population in safeguarding their centuries-old traditions and ‘savoir faire’ and the development of artistic activities as a means of social dialogue (theatre, stories and videos).

The project is lead by Talassemtane pour l’Environnement et le Développement, a non-profit association based in Tunisia and dedicated to promoting, developing and safeguarding the natural and cultural heritage; in partnership with the Urban Municipality of Chefchaouen; and in cooperation with the international association Diversity & Development, expert in Chefchaouen’s Mediterranean Diet Heritage research.
