ESC WHAT - Water Herritage Action Together

Freiwilligen-Zentrum Augsburg

Augsburg, Germany

Beschreibung der Tätigkeit

The issue to be addressed is the need for a greater understanding of the importance of water and waterways (canals, rivers, harbours, aqueducts) for European Cultural heritage and the re-purposing and celebration of water-related infrastructure. The activities foreseen are those necessary to clean and restore waterways and their surroundings in the chosen locations and to contribute to actions that will recognise and celebrate the importance of water and waterways for cultural heritage. This can include: clearing unwanted plants and weeds; collecting rubbish; painting and restoration of stone, brick and or wooden structures, preparation of information actions with the local community using non-formal techniques. By restoring the waterways in this way the cultural heritage of Europe is protected and greater awareness raised amongst the volunteers and citizens about the ways in which cultural heritage connected to water and waterways in Europe is part of a shared history.
