EUROCITIES is thrilled to launch Cultural Heritage in Action, a peer-learning programme for local and regional policy makers to exchange knowledge on cultural heritage, with a focus on participatory governance, adaptive reuse and quality of interventions. ROCK cities have been working on these topics for the past years and have many examples and good practices to share.
Cultural Heritage in Action shall empower cities and regions to strengthen their cultural heritage policies and initiatives and to develop innovative solutions to preserve cultural heritage assets. It is one of the actions of the Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage of the European Commission.
The consortium led by EUROCITIES with KEA, ERRIN, Europa Nostra and Architects’ Council of Europe leads the project funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme until April 2021.
The project will produce a catalogue of 30 good practices from EU cities, regions, non-urban and rural areas and will organise 12 peer-learning visits bringing together 20+ participants per visit.
A call is open until 27 March 2020 to identify 30 local practices that are innovative, inspiring for other cities and regions and have a real impact on the ground. The selected practices will be featured in a catalogue. In June 2020 a call for participation to peer-learning visits will be launched. It will be open to representatives from local and regional authorities and to cultural heritage stakeholders.
An information webinar on the project and on the call for good practices was organised on Friday 6 March, the recorded video is available here.
