Kalmar County Museum and the international organization Bridging Ages have developed a Time Travel concept, an educational method that uses local heritage to create reflection on contemporary issues, aiming at social cohesion, learning and community building. The Time Travel method is seen both as a process, where people meet, research, discuss and prepare an event, and a role play based on a fictional story at a local site. The event is centred on key questions for reflection and discussion, practical activities, learning areas and problems to solve. Six examples of the Time Travel method are described and discussed, four from South Africa and two from Serbia with focusses on social and environmental sustainability, reconciliation and tolerance. The start, development and the basis of the Time Travel method in Kalmar is explained, also the methodology and principles as well as benefits and challenges of the concept.
