ABOUT THE PROJECT

The COOLture among young people project aims at the long-term preservation of Europe’s cultural heritage through the promotion, awareness, intercultural cooperation and commitment of stakeholders, in particular youth NGOs. This 2-year project focuses on cultural education by creating a range of tools available to the public and implementing training in this area, both for the staff of the partners involved and for the young people in the communities involved.

As a final result, the project will raise awareness of the importance of cultural heritage in the lives of young people and in the prosperous development of regional communities by creating international tools and actions in all 5 countries, which will promote and remind young people about local heritage.
