World Heritage Sites

Five World Heritage Sites and one candidate for World Heritage in Germany and neighbouring states became places of education and climate action during the project. The five World Heritage Sites were ideally suited to implement the project due to their long experience in World Heritage protection, management and education, a high expertise on the impact of climate change on World Heritage and their transnational and intercultural cooperations. Herrnhut, which was nominated for a transnational World Heritage extension at the time of the project, also highly engaged the civil society and the young generation in this process and was thus well qualified for the transnational education project. Encompassing archaeological sites, gardens and cultural landscapes, urban settlements and natural heritage, the six sites display a diversity of (potential) World Heritage that met the young people's diverse interests and backgrounds but also represented the manifold challenges of climate change for different heritage types.
