What does „heritage“ mean to you? What is your heritage – your city, your village, your region, your country, Europe, the world? In your eyes, which heritage is so special that it is relevant for others as well, even for the entire humanity?
Looking at European heritage from a bi-national perspective is the aim of the cooperation project „Sharing Heritage – Europäisches Kulturerbejahr 2018 - Werde Teil und teile“, jointly organised by the German Commission for UNESCO, the German Archaeological Institute and the Hellenic National Commission for UNESCO. During this project, four young experts will mentor two school classes in Athens and Berlin. The students have the possibility to participate in an exchange about European heritage and will jointly prepare a digital presentation of their discussions and results.
The projects goals are manifold: sensitizing for the topic “heritage”, encouraging students’ personal connection to their shared heritage, promoting intercultural dialogue and fostering practical experiences of young experts. Furthermore, the project offers a starting point for long-term exchanges about heritage and Europe amongst the participating students.
