What was the impact of the project at the local and national level in your country? Please provide qualitative and quantitative indicators.
The impact of the project regarding the preservation of cultural heritage is significant, as it has made it easier and more lasting to pass on customary knowledge and customs to future generations. By mastering the technique of digitalizing and preserving ritual recipes, we guarantee that these valued traditions will not fade away with time and will remain shareable and enjoyable for individuals across the globe. Digital recipes, unlike conventional paper-based ones, have a lower probability of being misplaced or harmed and can be readily exchanged and dispersed across multiple platforms and devices.
Furthermore, digitization can aid in fostering cultural exchange and comprehension. By rendering recipes accessible in diverse languages, we can disseminate our customs with individuals from distinct cultures and regions of the world, and advance greater admiration and deference for cultural diversity.
