In January 2019, UNESCO and the European Union launched a new project to strengthen the connections between young people, cultural heritage and education. The project proposes an innovative approach to education by inviting teachers and learners to explore their living heritage and learn not only about it but also with and through it. In close collaboration with the UNESCO Associated Schools in the European Union (ASPnet members), UNESCO will carry out a series of activities to assist schools in identifying and mapping the living heritage present in the school community.

In this context, UNESCO will organize a workshop to explore the use of intangible cultural heritage in school-based learning from 26 to 29 October, in Vienna, Austria. Ten school teams formed by one teacher and one learner – from 11 to 18 years old – will be selected to take part in this pilot edition. During three days, they will learn more about the safeguarding of their living heritage and will develop small innovative projects integrating living heritage within the existing curricula or in extracurricular activities. Following the workshop, the school teams will be invited to implement the pilot projects in their schools with the assistance of UNESCO trained facilitators. In February 2020, the participants will come together again to share the lessons learned from their pilot projects and to formulate recommendations for the guidance materials. A short video documenting the whole pilot project is also foreseen.
