The ‘25 by 25’ project aims to support and encourage young people aged 15 to 21 years old to increase their interaction with cultural activities and experiences. The project will develop a matrix of European cultural activities for youths to help them achieve the goal of learning and developing their skills and knowledge through 25 meaningful cultural experiences by the age of 25 years old.
It will also develop a place-based cultural curriculum framework which will allow anyone to create a cultural learning module about their town or city.
- Increase accessibility to existing cultural heritage
- Extend the involvement of excluded youths in cultural heritage initiatives
- Instil a strong message of “25 by 25” amongst youths and youth workers
The transnational dimension of the 25 by 25 project will be strengthened through the peer-learning and peer exchange element of the 25 by 25 Digital Platform. This will allow the beneficiaries to understand the different cultural manifestations of the wider European Union, through knowledge of the diverse range of shared European cultural heritage.
The role of ITML
We will be mainly responsible for developing the project’s final intellectual output (the 25 by 25 digital platform), which integrates the outcomes of the first and second pilots into a repository and skills portfolio with youths, and youth workers/organisations. On the other hand, we will be supporting our national partner to conduct research on a national, regional, and local levels related to the best practices devoted to raise the awareness/engagement of youths in cultural heritage experiences, in order to develop the aforementioned curriculum.
