The visit is a great opportunity for anyone curious about rural development and territorial cohesion of the region via various cultural heritage initiatives and projects. Cantabria region worked on the transformation of a religious building (Domus Dei) into an inclusive centre (Domus Populi) to facilitate community encounters and welcome tourists and pilgrims. Participants will also explore the use of European funds and projects for regional cultural heritage initiatives, and how to connect these initiatives to the Sustainable Development Goals.

The visit will take place from 21-23 September. The Cultural Heritage in Action project is covering for participants’ travel and stay in Cantabria. The group of selected participants will be composed of representatives from European cities and regions from the EU 27 + UK, but is also open to local cultural heritage stakeholders and architects.

During the peer-learning visit, participants will be able to discuss successful local policies and projects, top tips, pitfalls and failures in a private and friendly expert environment. Selected participants will get useful information and ideas for improving or initiating local projects or transferring some of the presented practices.
