Cultural tourism workshop organized at EUROMED 2022


The event is organized in the framework of EUROMED (7-11 November 2022) by H2020 project INCULTUM, to discuss about the role of community engagement and citizen participation in enhancing and promoting sustainable tourism in peripheral areas that are not often part of the mass tourism itineraries. INCULTUM research, experiments and findings are oriented to foster positive impacts of cultural tourism, and to demonstrate the high potential of the marginal and peripheral places, cultural heritage and resources when managed by local communities and stakeholders.

This workshop is addressed to cultural managers, cultural heritage institutions, local communities with a stake on tourism potential of their areas, policy makers and researchers on sustainable tourism and local promotion.
