This article presents a framework for strengthening the capacity of youth to participate effectively in preserving the heritage of Beirut, Lebanon. We facilitated ground-testing methodologies, best practice examples, and new avenues for collaboration that brought education development into play in addition to facilitating a series of capacity-building workshops with the youth that comprised digital data gathering and presentation methods for designing online digital platforms to raise their engagement with and awareness of the city’s contested heritage. The tool kit provides an opportunity and guidelines for developing an effective participatory approach that enables youth to tell their stories.
