This resource centre is intended to support any youth or heritage organisation, working in rural areas of Europe, that wants to build the capacity of their staff in the field of youth and rural heritage.
More specifically, target groups are:
- youth workers: any person, whether paid or volunteering, who works with young people (i.e. aged 15 to 30 years’ old);
- heritage facilitators/interpreters: any person whose job or hobby is to disseminate knowledge on natural or cultural heritage in a rural area and who wants to develop activities with young audiences.
The purpose is to develop skills to guide young people from discovering their local heritage to developing a project or any other heritage-related activities and promoting active citizenship. To achieve this, the learning plan comprises a glossary explaining the main pedagogical concepts of the project and a toolbox which groups a series of activities and teaching supports.
