To create an outreach programme at transition year school level with schools, local communities and national curriculum development units.
How does Task 5 relate to Discovering Ireland’s Ancient Peoples and Landscapes?
The Discovery Programme regards its obligation to communicate its academic research to the wider community as a key mission. Our aim is to enable communities to understand that they are the custodians of their archaeological and historical landscapes. This educational remit is aligned to Goal (i) of the Heritage Council’s Strategic Plan 2012-2016. To increase the understanding of the contribution that heritage makes to our identity, well-being, health and to sustainable development. The Discovery Programme will develop outreach projects in schools, with tourism bodies, national cultural institutions, curriculum development units, and national and local archaeological and historical societies.
