Departing from local legends, the programme “Where is Ypsipyli hiding?” proposes a journey of knowledge around the island of Lemnos, expected to bring to the fore the island’s contemporary identity, encompassing tangible and intangible heritage, the natural environment, as well as modern aspects of Lemnian life and creativity.
The project directly involves 6-18 year-old students, as well as their teachers. Indirect beneficiaries include permanent and temporary residents of all ages, visitors, local authorities and entrepreneurs, as well as edu-cultural stakeholders beyond Lemnos Island.
The actions of the program are under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Lemnos. They have received approval for implementation in all the schools of Lemnos from the Directorates of Primary and Secondary Education of the Prefecture of Lesvos, for the school year 2023-24.
A dissemination activity of pivotal importance to the program, present in all three chapters, which seeks to leave a tangible imprint on the island, attracting the interest of the younger generation and the general public to the reference points and values of the program even after its completion.
In particular, “Ypsipyli’s Path” aims to retell the history of Lemnos and the individual stories that will emerge from the educational activities, through a physical route that will pass through the points of interest (buildings, monuments and other landmarks) across the entire island.
The “Path” will be marked by recognizable signposts that will carry interdisciplinary information material for each “stop” in the form of QR code (QR code) text and multimedia.
Each Chapter will contribute to the “Path” ten stations.
