2018 is the European year of cultural heritage. Its aim is to encourage the largest number of people to discover the European cultural heritage and enhance the sense of belonging to a common area. The cultural heritage shapes out identities, our lives, and surrounds us in cities, villages, natural landscapes and archaeological sites. It doesn’t only include literature, arts and objects but also craftsmanship passed on through the generations, the stories we tell our children, the food we enjoy in company and the films we watch.
In line with the European year of cultural heritage, the majority of the eTwinning activities will focus on the theme of cultural heritage, which offers to eTwinners a unique opportunity to create learning experiences to capitalise on intercultural educational practices with the aim of sustaining and enhancing European cooperation.
