Developing model of the Schools on cemeteries programme is one of our goals in the project and we are keen on seing your proposals. The model consists of few important guidelines explained futher here.

Promoting values of Cultural routes

European Cemeteries Route is labeled as Cultural route of Europe by European Institute of Cultural routes. It is thus important that schools programmes promote values of Cultural routes:

  • Human rights
  • Cultural democracy and diversity
  • Mutual understanding and exchanges across boundaries

Promoting European Cemeteries Route and ASCE

Besides learning about the local cemetery it is important that young people learn about the diversity of cemeteries in Europe. It is therefore important in the progammes to present European Cemeteries Route and ASCE at least by following content:

  • notable presence of logos in presentations and other materials
  • photos of various cemeteries around Europe
  • a fact or a story from other European cemetery, member of European Cemeteries Route
