One focus of the conference is to discuss the importance of the topic “World Heritage” in schools and to illustrate the possibilities to anchor the topic in school curricula. The second focus highlights the significance of World Heritage and World Heritage sites for vocational education and training. Aiming to make World Heritage a constituent element of “lifelong learning”, this conference addresses World Heritage professionals, monument conservators, restorers and crafts people as well as teachers, and develops ideas for hands-on interpretation activities. Communicating World Heritage in theory and practice to all generations means preparing the topic for schools and vocational training, and understanding and using World Heritage sites as places for learning and capacity-building. Information on registration and the conference programme will be provided in due time. Contact for information: Friederike Hansell, Saxon World Heritage Coordination email:
