Youth on the Trail of World Heritage
School twinning program
The Youth on the Trail of World Heritage 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.
Moreover, the OWHC offers a twinning scholarship of CAN $10,000, which will facilitate, for one or two groups of students, the organization of stay in their twin city. The young people thus have the opportunity to meet each other more than virtually and to discover in situ the heritage wealth of their twin city.
The 2019-2020 edition had to be shortened given the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now over. Come back in September of 2021 for a new edition!
In the meantime, we invite you to consult the work carried out by the young students and their teachers from participating schools in the 2019-2020 edition.Work of the students – 2019-2020 Edition
