Young Climate Action for World Heritage

Project Description

"Young Climate Action for World Heritage" is an international educational project of the Institute Heritage Studies (IHS) and the German Commission for UNESCO. It is funded by the German Federal Environmental Foundation. The youth project provides an innovative approach combining the topics of UNESCO World Heritage and climate change. At six UNESCO World Heritage sites, students from UNESCO Associated schools and other schools deal with climate change. By using creative and action-oriented methods, they are exploring the following question: How can we take responsibility for the sustainable preservation of World Heritage sites and for combating climate change locally? Their results will be presented at the World Heritage sites. Furthermore, the project results will be prepared in a handout accessible to all educational actors and other interested parties.
