In a race against time, the “Ambulance for Monuments” project is seeking the salvation from collapse or irredeemable decay of hundreds of endangered built-heritage treasures in Romania. One of the initiative’s main aims is informal education for young professionals through hands-on training. This is a kind of education which is lacking not just in Romania but in many Eastern European countries. Most of the volunteers are students and young practitioners from the fields of architecture, restoration, urban planning, engineering, archaeology, history, cultural tourism, etc., seeking to expand their knowledge and soft skills, acquiring competencies and meta-competencies while participating in a large interdisciplinary project.
