Description of the project: 

The project is the result of the eTwinning Seminar held in Esslingen from 12th to 14th October 2017. The inspiration derives from the European Cultural Heritage Year in 2018. The project is for 14 to 16-year-old students from 5 different countries from 5 different corners of Europe (Italy, Spain, Germany, Poland and Greece). They will work on their local tangible and intangible cultural heritage. Students are expected to work in groups and find four different topics like monuments, industrial buildings, landscapes, food, etc. and tell with a video or PPT presentation what they used to be, what they are now and what they might become in the future. At the end of the project they are expected to produce an interactive digital and/or paper map or brochure.
