On the 8th and the 9th of August 2018 the kick-off meeting of the project Heritage Hubs took place in Helsinki, to allow partners to meet each other and go through the main issues of the project.
Heritage Hubs is a European project developed within the Creative Europe Programme to enhance the role of heritage culture within young people ordinary life, thought as vehicle to drive a sense of belonging to the common land such as the European Union.
In this framework, schools play a key role in easing multicultural relations and through the use of audiovisual material and video, young people will live an immersive experience to learn by others culture and share their own.
The approach represents the innovative aspect of the project, therefore partners from Finland such as the Association of Cultural Heritage Education in Finland, from Spain such as the San Millán de la Cogolla Foundation, from Italy such as VITECO and from Serbia such as the URBAN DEVELOPMENT CENTER are all united to contrast cultural barriers and obstacles to mutual understanding.
Young people from 11 to 15 years, educators, schools, cultural organizations as well as wide public will be all involved in a project that enhance the role of cultural heritage and common cultural background.
