The project enhances intercultural exchange and interaction by encouraging young people to explore and share their own cultural heritage, and to get to know and practise the cultural heritage of others. This approach provides opportunities to recognise and understand that many traditions come from the same European background sharing historical similarities. This will deepen the understanding of the meaning of the cultural heritage for the individual wellbeing as well as for a group and a community, and it will increase respect towards the cultural heritage of others and the feeling of belonging to a common cultural space. Heritage Hubs creates Practical Classes in Exploring, Sharing and Practicing the Cultural Heritage of Ourselves and Others for children and young people, approximately age 11–15 years, in different European countries.
