Till October 2019, the associated Sub-project A is sponsored during three years by the Ministry for Science and Culture of Lower Saxony.

The associated project explores how young people, age 15- to 17, perceive world cultural heritage regarding its  universal and regional meaning as well as the importance they personally attach to the heritage sites.      

 

Lower Saxony‘s Ministry of Science and Culture granted a financial support of 200.000€ for the three-year research project “World cultural heritage from the perspective of youths - perceptions, meanings, attitudes and values in context of cultural awareness and societal transformation“.

To realize the research, the Institute of Didactics of Natural Sciences is cooperating with the research center TRUST as well as selected schools in Hannover, which have already been in contact with the Didactics of Geography in the past. At first, the perceptions, meanings, attitudes and values will be collected in small group-discussions, videotaped and analyzed by means of a qualitative content analysis. Additionally, the groups will visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site of their choice in Lower Saxony.

In cooperation with the Institute of Educational Psychology, under the supervision of Joachim Grabowski, materials and questionnaires will be designed, used in schools and analyzed. The results of the study will be presented at the congress of the International Geographical Union (IGU) in 2019.
