Youth on the Trail of World Heritage
School Twinning Program
The OWHC announces the launch of the 2019-2020 Edition of Youth on the Trail of World Heritage. This program consists in pairing schools located in World Heritage cities and making it possible for groups of young people aged between 15 and 18 years old to get acquainted with the notion of World Heritage. Pairings allow students of different cities to virtually exchange their ideas, knowledge and work related to this subject. The students thus become aware of the universal value of their heritage and the challenges involved in the management of heritage on the international level.
How to exchange virtually? Use the social medias available to you to dynamize the exchanges between the twinned classes!
Moreover, the OWHC offers a twinning scholarship of CAN $10,000, which will facilitate the organization of a student trip in their twin city. The young people will thus have the opportunity to meet each other more than virtually and to discover in situ the heritage wealth of their twin city.

Deadline to register your city and 1 or 2 schools to the program: 11 October 2019
