The project "Transboundary European World Heritage - a Topic for UNESCO Associated Schools" aimed to familiarise students and teachers with the topic of the Transboundary World Heritage Sites: The Mining Cultural Landscape Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří, the German-Polish Muskauer Park/Park Mużakowski and the German Hedeby and the Danevirke. Using these three heritage sites as examples, the students and teachers explored their joint European history, discovered what themes link them together, and those which set them apart. In binational workshops they developed themes and questions regarding the transnational heritage sites and visualised them into contemporary formats.
