Introduction

The Promoting dialogue and cultural Understanding of our Shared Heritage (PUSH) project, which partners the Jordanian Society for Sustainable Development, Bezalel Academy for Art and Design and Al Quds University in a tri-lateral effort to identify, develop and promote greater understanding of the region's shared cultural and natural heritage held its Regional Tour and Symposium November 21-23, 2007 in Jerusalem.  The event kicked off with a full day tour of four sites of shared heritage with participants from each of the partner countries as well as numerous international guests. The subsequent two days brought together academics, professionals and community members to review and discuss the PUSH project's thematic analysis of the region's common heritage.   PUSH's newest publication Our Shared Heritage: An Anthology of the Region's Shared Natural and Cultural Heritage was released concurrently with the symposium.
