Skills Development and Training Courses for Young People

Adopting a more hands-on approach

At skills development training courses, young people are actively involved in the preservation of World Heritage, while acquiring new skills that contribute to a better understanding of the importance of both their tangible (monuments, historical centres, natural reserves, etc.) and intangible heritage (traditional know-how, music, literature, etc.).
