GREEK TEAM

We have chosen to present some books and leaflets that have been produced by
students and teachers in cooperation in the frame of environmental and cultural educational
programs in Secondary Schools in the region of Trikala.

One can not find specific didactic guides on cultural heritage among the official
didactic books at schools. Only some general guidelines can be used as an advisory material
for organizing cultural events at schools. However, the greek educational system has
incorporated in its curriculum cultural and environmental projects, which are being realized
during the school year outside the curriculum and presented at the end of the school year in
public. The result is some books or brochures or even multimedia presentations of
monuments of culture or nature, important events of the local history and other aspects of the
cultural past and present of the local community (music, literature, industrial production,
customs, folk songs etc.).
The importance of those projects is the fact that students and teachers have learned and
thought about their heritage through personal research in libraries and on the internet, by
wandering around and observing their natural and human environment.
