Stop, think and move on from your culture

The cultural traces and the tangible remains of the civilizations that are the common heritage of humanity appear almost everywhere. Heritage is protected by transmission from generation to generation, which has a mission to strengthen societies, as traditional values that guide people’s lives as cultural wealth.

 

It is seen that tangible cultural heritage has been destroyed over time and all these traditional values have begun to disappear in modern life, although they are quite valuable. It is necessary to transfer to the younger generations, to promote these factors among children and young people, and to raise awareness about protection. The project aims to improve the basic skills and competences of young people with regard to the protection of cultural heritage and its transfer to future generations.

Objectives of the project:

  • Increase the participants’ awareness of the importance of the cultural heritage.
  • Increase the participants’ curiosity about the museums.
  • To make the local population aware of the protection of cultural heritage.
  • To show participants the attitudes and opinions of the local population in the old city, the challenges and benefits of living in an old city.
  • The participants learn what they have to do to protect their own cultural heritage.
  • Make good practices on the protection of cultural heritage commonplace.
