2018 is the European Year of Cultural Heritage. One of the main issues declared by Europe is that “Heritage has a big role to play in building the future of Europe. That is one reason why we want to reach out to young people in particular during the European Year.”

Firmly agreeing with this, we think that one sign of a healthy community is its coexisting ability to preserve and reinvent its culture that is, to safeguard its Past and its Cultural Heritage while developing new expressions for current times.

Through this project we intend to respond to some issues which we consider quite relevant for the well-being of young generations, which is one of our main task as professionals dealing with the field of education.

Yet, we firmly believe that young generations, if conveniently educated and trained, can contribute to local development as they can enhance their interest and energy to address concerns such as heritage management and local development.
