Social Sciences and especially Economics, History and Geography provide the background for understanding the actions and decisions of governments, businesses and especial individuals and to explain social phenomenas of the world. It provides the resources to understand several interactions in a market-driven society and for analyzing government policies that affect the businesses, families, jobs and the lives of citizens at a local, national and global standard.

Historical complex of my town, is inscribed on The UNESCO World Heritage list and this inspired me for the project, including the fact that the year 2018 is the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the year of events, activities and celebrations all around Europe to get people interested and involved in cultural heritage. So, the idea is that students from different countries exchange their knowledge about the topic and that they learn something new through Project Based Learning. The main aim of the project is that sudents who live in those places that have been on the World Heritage List become more aware of the value of their surroundings and that they learn about other protected places in Europe. In order to be included on the World Heritage List, sites must be of outstanding universal value and meet at least one out of ten selection criteria. The students will learn about those criteria and about The UNESCO itself. Furthermore, they will exchange their experience about living in a town or site of that category. Both, positive and negative experience should be included. They will be in position to suggest some ideas about changes in their surroundings if they notice something negative. Students will sharpen their critical thinking skills, collaborate with their peers across Europe and deepen their language knowledge.
