SCENARIO “hiStory, Culture and technology for EducatiN of Adults to UNESCO heritage” is a project financed by Erasmus+, Key Action 2 – Cooperation for innovation and exchange of best practices. The project is aimed at studying, analyzing and proposing new challenges for UNESCO’s sites that, from places of conservation and protection of the cultural heritage become a space of valorization but also a lifelong learning laboratory, a safe space for active citizenship and civic partnerships.
The project is based on UNESCO Recommendation on Adult Learning and Education through digital technology (2015), posing as well as a redactor of the digital divide among generations (Europe Strategy 2020) and to increase the sustainable development, as established by the Europe Strategy 2030.
The project is mainly focused on the cultural heritage of the Mediterranean area, influenced by a multicultural approach (through a socio-cultural methodology) in order to highlight its role in the much wider area of the global UNESCO heritage.
Story-telling is an ancient tradition, whether written down or orally transmitted. Nowadays, the “Digi-Tales” tool (as a product of Digital Story-Telling – DST could collect the heritage of this art, mixing it with technological development. Keeping this goal in mind, SCENARIO main objective is to explore, through the research and exchange of good practices, the potential strenght of storytelling in our cultural heritage, giving particular attention to the education of the adults.
In our minds, UNESCO sites represents a place of conservation and preservation of our common cultural heritage, SCENARIO’s objective is to shine a new light on a different perspective, allowing them to become:
- An educational and creative space;
- A open lab for the development and empowerment of the civic process;
- A research hub for the developmento of new, innovative practices.
Keeping this in mind, it is only natural that particular attention will be dedicated to storytelling’s intergenerational and intercultural aspects, specific for each site. Each partner shall build the storytelling keeping this in mind, in addition to elaborate on the sociological and anthropological context.
