Developing official programme is one of our goals in the project and we are keen on seing your proposals. To get you started before the official programme is finished, here are some general guidelines to follow:

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 local cemetery children should 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
