In the frame of the Horizon 2020 funded project “Beyond Cultural Tourism (Be.CulTour)”, launched recently (read more here), ERRIN is publishing an open call to join the Be.CulTour Community.
12 local and regional representatives committed to shaping the future of cultural tourism will have the opportunity to benefit from a fully-funded peer-learning scheme that follows the pilot/mirror approach.
Via quarterly community conversations, dedicated interviews, tailored webinars, and offline learning labs (Brussels in 2022 and Naples in 2023), the community members will interact closely with 6 pilot ecosystems committed to fostering regional development through circular cultural tourism.
The open call and peer-learning programme will be presented on Tuesday, 13th April, 14.00-16.15 CET, in the frame of a webinar on “Creating destinations after a global pandemic: The new competitive advantage of remote areas”.
