Cultural Heritage Education: Ancient Greece as a Case Study

Description

Concept by Cynthia Rodopoulou

Raising awareness of the importance and value of cultural heritage amongst young Europeans is of vital importance if we aim to ensure future sustainability and cultivate a sense of belonging to the European family. Protecting and promoting Europe’s cultural heritage also appears among the strategic objectives of the European Union.

Cultural heritage education (CHE), as one of the main aims of the European Heritage Strategy for the 21st Century (ST21), can be the vehicle for the promotion of our shared cultural heritage, but also for showing that different cultural identities can complement and enrich each other by co-existing and shaping a common European identity.

Based on the pillars and the values of the European Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage, this course aims to use the rich historical and artistic heritage of Greece as a case study on how cultural heritage education can help us understand modern societies and create more inclusive, cohesive, and sustainable community environments.

By taking part in constructive activities and games, as well as guided tours at archaeological sites, course participants will discover the richness of ancient Greek history, arts, and language.

Through experiential learning and discussion on cultural heritage interpretation, they will learn how to preserve their cultural heritage, thereby developing a deep understanding that promotes a sense of European identity and social inclusion.

Let’s start our journey through the centuries to design our future!

The instructor was simply a professional. Very well prepared, the course was very well thought over. We also had a great chance to benefit from talking to our colleagues.

It was an enriching and challenging experience. I learnt how to think and act out of the box and how to empower myself and my students. Marina Moreno is an awesome and well prepared trainer. I appreciate her a lot.

Silvia Mattioli
5 stars

I mostly enjoyed the chance to learn new content from the tutor of the course, to meet colleagues coming from different countries, to stay in a wonderful town like Athens, to express myself in the field (inclusion) that I deal with in my job.
