Haapamäki – Cultural heritage from children’s perspective

Haapamäki – Cultural heritage from children’s perspective

Location of the initiative:

FINLAND, Haapamäki/Keuruu


Relation to Strategy 21 Recommendations:

K1 - Incorporate heritage education more effectively in school curricula


Time span of the initiative:

Start Date: August 2018 / End Date: December 2018


Motivation / Methodology

· Developing cultural heritage materials for the local school in Haapamäki.

· Involving the local community, asking the local people involved with history to participate in sharing their knowledge and stories.

We wanted to reinforce the local community, activate the people and give them the feeling that their work is important.


Obstacles / Barriers

Timetables were challenging to make, because there were many volunteers and the school has very strict time limits.

Some of the teachers were not interested in incorporating cultural heritage into their lessons.


Change / Impact

The school has more contacts with the local people involved in local cultural history.

The school has a ready to use toolbox for implementing cultural heritage in different classes.

The teachers have a better perspective on what kind of cultural heritage there is in Haapamäki and where they can visit.

The children are more aware of their cultural environment.


Lessons learned

Good coordination is very important.

Schools need very clear and easy to implement projects.

The local people have a lot of quiet knowledge and stories to be told, sometimes they need help when talking about them.

Taking into consideration the children’s age/class is very important.
