Baggrund WHE

World Heritage Education Project (WHE) has, as its foundation, the 754 World Heritage sites which are covered by UNESCO's World Heritage Convention, sites of natural beauty and cultural monuments.

The project's aims are to strengthen the participating schools' international network and their co-operation on the development of new teaching materials and cross-curricular activities. All this to enhance their knowledge of our common world heritage and their appreciation of the world's natural and cultural diversity, and thereby placing them at the forefront of their educational agenda.
The project comprehensively covers a number of school subjects, and using the world heritage sites as a starting point pupils can work with the historical, social, religious and cultural aspects and such themes as local skills and economic development of the areas. And with a focus on both the past and present.

The following could provide possible points of entry for study with the World Heritage Education Project:

The World Heritage Convention and the criteria for the selection, preservation and protection of the sites

World Heritage and historical, religious and cultural identity

World Heritage and sustainable tourism
