The project will be conducted in Kłodzko Municipality (Lower Silesia Voivodeship), an area that experienced an almost complete turnover of its population. Currently, the municipality has several nationalities shared between its citizens, but the region’s history remains relatively unknown to them. Additionally, our municipality lacks a space for meetings, such as a community center, a social club, or an organization providing history education and civic engagement workshops. The only place available is the Private Primary School in Żelazno. It was the school’s students and employees who proposed the initiative aimed at the entire community. The initiative will involve children, seniors and other adults, all learning about the local history and preserving it for the future.
We will implement the idea by organizing a field game for the youth around our municipality. Additionally, we will create an album with all the collected materials that will serve as an aid for adults in learning about the area’s history. After the conclusion of the project, the album will be gifted to local school libraries and will serve as a guidebook to the local history. These solutions have been discussed with the local community: students, teachers, parents, and seniors. We will also promote volunteering with seniors and encourage members of our communities to collect information about the region’s history. Seniors will be involved in designing information included with the field game and the album. Finally, we will organize a meeting to summarize the project and engage more of the residents who have a wealth of knowledge about the local history.
