On 25 October, the Policy Learning Platform is hosting the second episode of the Cultural routes webinar series. Join us from 14:00 to 15:30 CET to learn about reviving cultural routes with examples from across Europe.
Europe’s cultural and natural heritage is as rich and diverse as are its member states. It comprises natural, built and archaeological sites, museums, monuments, artworks, historic cities, literary and musical work, and is an important element of social life, as well as economic development.
Cultural routes bring together education, leisure and physical activity, helping visitors discover history, gastronomy or art. Together with digitalization, they are key building blocks of responsible tourism. In this webinar, we will explore cultural routes from the Czech Republic, Portugal and Italy.
