This September 2017, in any day at your ease
Slogan: Let's time travel through Monuments
'An International Month of Monuments' on Local Guide Connect
Monuments speak about our past. Sometimes our single lifespan is negligibly small as compared to their existence. The monuments have witnessed numerous generations and events & are the best resource to explore any scientific or cultural information. But monuments have to fight with natural weatherings. Our activities like constructions, industrialization, acid rain, caused vibrations etc. are degrading our monuments. Natural calamities & disasters like earthquakes, floods can destroy our monuments in seconds. Nepal Local Guides have witnessed such destruction in 2015, April 25 earthquake.
In this proposed event “Local Guide Monument Month”, we want to bring spotlight to the forgotten masterpieces. We’d like to bring them to the digital platform. Thousands of tourists visit these monuments every year. Many people have livelihood connected with these monuments. We’d like our monuments to tell their stories to the global mass. Google Maps is the best platform to do that.
Sometimes as we move for specific purpose, later on something triggers in our mind and makes us feel like we were running for general purpose. It's just like a small stream runs to find a river. As it finds the river then it knows that the river itself is running to find sea. While organizing Bhaktapur Geo Walk. LG team of Nepal felt that monuments are in shadow and waiting our love/attention. The notion of Local Guides Connect 'wherever you go, be like a local' helps us to feel the smell of locality but sometimes it's better to 'be like a curious kid wherever you go'. Asking Wh-questions to local people about the places gives us tremendous amount of knowledge of the places. So we the LGs of Nepal made up our mind to organize 'Local Guide Monument Month' worldwide with the hope of getting full support from international community.
Let’s organize Photo Walks, Map Editing or Geo Walks around our monuments in this month of September. We dream to compile the records we added into the Google Maps this month world wide and prepare a souvenir book. We express our gratitude to the Nepal Local Guides, Google team and all the members of Local Guide Connect. The report of all the worldwide events will be collected via Local Guide Monument Month - Recap form.
