Discovering local rural heritage

This opening module offers a series of activities to boost young people’s interest in their surrounding heritage. Firstly, there are several exercises to better grasp the concept of heritage and its sheer diversity. The next step is discovering and understanding the link between heritage and daily life and, more broadly, its contribution to local development, as well as what constitutes a community’s cultural, economic and social foundations.

Note: All these activities encourage team working. Please refer to Module 3 - Nurture and support citizen-based projects, for all aspects linked to youth group dynamics and team working.
