The World Heritage as a learning space

In the study of the 13 UNESCO World Heritage properties, teachers and learners discover a variety of interdisciplinary educational opportunities. From teaching aids from various publishing houses to guided tours of the World Heritage Sites with the guides, everything is available for their lessons and/or the next week of projects. The focus of these out-of-school learning places is on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and NMG. Where does your educational journey begin?
