Leisure? Education? World Heritage Volunteers in Weimar
World Heritage Volunteers
As cultural and natural heritage sites have increased year by year, people have thought highly of the importance of spreading the idea of protecting heritage to the next generation through education. Since World Heritage Volunteers is a part of World Heritage Education Programme laid out by UNESCO World Heritage Centre, this research takes World Heritage Volunteers 2015 in Weimar as the case to discuss: (1) the leisure type of World Heritage Volunteers and the situation of combining it with education; (2) the practice of World Heritage Volunteers, which is to provide a new idea of heritage education from the aspect of leisure through the fieldwork. The findings suggest that World Heritage Volunteers as project-based leisure, the participants come with different motivations. It is difficult to raise heritage protection awareness through education, especially when the outcome could be influenced by personal attitudes. However, in order to strike a balance between leisure and heritage education, it is necessary to understand and satisfy the people’s needs. In addition, since this activity does not hold the possibility of further development, the organization should strive to let volunteers interact with heritage, help them gain more benefits, and foster the education at once. On the other hand, in terms of the objectives of the initiative, giving weight to the participation among young people and local communities as well as fostering cooperation between organizations, are also the keys to put the project into a successful practice.
