‘Traces of the past’ is an educational program which aims to restore cultural heritage of Poland. It is also the way to look for the connections among cultures and show common responsibilities. The program initiates youth actions dedicated to preservation and promotion of local cultural heritage. It is intended for students from middle and high schools, implemented during civic education, history, literature, art classes as well as within extra classes programmes. Students search for a historical monument in their region, learn about its history and take care of it , “adopt” a chosen object. Then, in cooperation with a local government and regional cultural institutions, they provide initiatives toward restoration of the monument. These activities serve to promote cultural heritage of a particular town and region. While participating in the project, youngsters rediscover the history of their home-place.
