World Heritage for Young People

The willingness to deal with UNESCO World Heritage in school lessons sends an important, future-oriented signal: it promotes access to our common heritage for future generations and thus strengthens the awareness of identity, mutual respect, dialogue, and exchange between cultures. To facilitate interaction with the topic of World Heritage, this digital format was developed for quick and easy access to important information on this subject as well as the Austrian World Heritage sites. Interesting tasks have been designed to facilitate active engagement with our World Heritage sites, their significance, and preservation.
