Austria's LERNORT DENKMAL

Austria's LERNORT DENKMAL

Location of the initiative:

 AUSTRIA - 1010, Vienna


Relation to Strategy 21 Recommendations:

K2 - Implement measures to encourage young people to practise heritage


Time span of the initiative:

2010


Brief description of the initiative:

The Federal Monuments Authority Austria launched its Education and Cultural Learning Programme LERNORT DENKMAL in 2010. This initiative is addressed to all Austrian schools, kindergartens and educational institutions and provides suggestions and ideas on how project work can be done in the field of cultural heritage and in the area of preservation and conservation. The main objective is the creation of a network of schools that integrate cultural heritage as a main topic in their classrooms. Whether as part of projects, workshops or tours – children and young people get the opportunity to explore and research their cultural heritage. Furthermore they are given the possibility of creative work and learning through practice in the common sense of „hands-on“. The Federal Monuments Authority Austria invites school-groups to visit its Department of Conservation and Restoration in Vienna or other important historic sites and museums. Expert-led visits or workshops support this Education and Cultural Learning Programme. The teacher's kit „Denkmalkoffer“ offers free educational tools which can be downloaded directly from the Internet (www.lernortdenkmal.at). „ON TOUR! Denkmalreise“ – as a part of this teacher’s kit - invites to a journey to explore and work with monuments and is based on a gradual and creative approach to the subject.


Objectives of the initiative:

  • to get to know, to understand and to pay attention to one's own culture, history and environment.
  • to raise awareness of how to deal with one's cultural heritage
  • to feel responsible for our cultural heritage and work actively for its preservation.

Brief assessment of the initiative’s results:

Till June 2015 approximately 10.600 pupils, 650 teachers, 450 classes and 200 schools in Austrian took part in the initiative. With some of these schools or school-classes project-work has been done for several years in order to achieve a sustainable cultural exchange
