Malaysia-Tunisia Cultural Heritage Studies (MATCHs) Symposium 2021 is the brainchild of the Department of Landscape Architecture, Kulliyyah of Architecture and Environmental Design (KAED), International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). Every year under the subject of ALA3311: Landscape Heritage and Cultural Studies, the Year 3 students of Bachelor (Honours) of Landscape Architecture will undergo an academic tour to any heritage sites around the globe. Due to the challenges of COVID-19 pandemic, the physical visit is no longer possible to take place. Thus, a virtual initiative has to be made in materialising the heritage academic tour to complete the requisites of this subject – and Tunisia is chosen as the country to be ‘visited’. The initiative by the Department of Landscape Architecture (KAED, IIUM) has eventually formed a mutual collaboration with a few institutions in Tunisia, namely; ENGAGE Hub Tunisia, National School of Architecture and Urbanism of Tunis (ENAU) as well as Polytechnic School of Sousse (EPS). The students from all institutions are working hand-in-hand to make the symposium a success, supervised by the academics from all the collaborating institutions. MATCHs Symposium 2021 will be held on the 10th to 12th September 2021 and it offers interesting sessions and activities including keynote speeches and sharing sessions from prominent speakers, virtual exhibitions on UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Malaysia and Tunisia, student charrette as well as cultural exchange activities. It is hoped that this symposium will gather and unite numerous audiences from any counterparts of the world through knowledge sharing and networking.
