R.E.A.C.H. to share
Our Erasmus+ project is entitled (Researching European And Cultural Heritage to share” (R.E.A.C.H. to share). The aim of the partnership aims at working and studying together on local UNESCO sites.
The coordinating school, “Lycée professionnel Buisson”, is located in Ermont (France). The other participating schools are located in Portugal (Sintra), Greece (Gerakas Pallinis), Romania (Focsani), Spain (Figueres), Turkey (Adana).
Our strategic partnership will enable participants (pupils and staff) to study and learn the inventoried local UNESCO’s tangible and intangible cultural heritage of Humanity. We initiate an innovative collaboration as we will work together for the first time and explore each other’s patrimonial local resource.
Our project “Researching European And Cultural Heritage to share” (R.E.A.C.H. to share) should be funded because the planned actions will contribute to raise awareness of Europe's important cultural heritage through education, informal and non-formal learning. It will serve a two-tier purpose, i.e. to continue inter-generational transmission and to ensure the transmission of Europe’s intangible, tangible cultural heritage knowledge.
Our project “R.E.A.C.H.” should be funded because it will help young people to better understand their past and the importance of heritage for their present and future in the wake of the fire at Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral. This fire undoubtedly aroused the interest, the use and the preservation of heritage in France and abroad.
Our partnership should be funded because it will facilitate access to local European heritage and will permit better and greater appreciation of its diversity among pupils and staff. We intend to empower participants to communicate about their personal cultural heritage and contribute to heritage preservation.
Each partner is motivated because the project’s theme is an innovation in each school. Participants (adults and students) will discover and share their own local heritage. They will also study and learn about their counterparts’ European heritage. We are all eager and have high expectations to share and enrich from another’s cultural heritage ; this two-year-long project will provide time to interact and discover patrimonial richness, to challenge assumptions about stereotyped European countries.
Participants will be encouraged to work together on tasks, learn from each other and solve problems together. Relationships among the working teams will strengthen and benefit from each member’s motivation. Key stages of and keys contributors to the project will be prized (with a trophy, a letter of appreciation, a mention at team meetings, a meal, a publication of stories, a Europass ceremony) recognizing the efforts achieved and the will committed.
France, Greece, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Turkey will implement the following tasks to share their local heritage.
