For whom?

The project will impact on the following target groups:

  • Pupils/students: are the most important stakeholders of the project. The project offers the possibility for inspiration, identity formation, developing new skills and wellbeing through cultural heritage;
  • Teachers the project offers inspiration for the teaching through presenting an innovative practice on heritage and intercultural education;
  • Schools are the associates of the project and operate in close cooperation with the national partner organisation acting as a coordinator;

Why?

The project provides opportunities to recognise and understand that many traditions come from the same European background sharing historical similarities. This will deepen the understanding of the meaning of the cultural heritage for the individual wellbeing as well as for a group and a community, and it will increase respect towards the cultural heritage of others and the feeling of belonging to a common cultural space.
