Communities

Involving universities, cultural heritage institutions, SMEs, local associations, groups of citizens, national and regional administrations, REACH is able to catalyse challenges and innovative pathways across the EU and beyond, addressing Cultural Heritage (CH) as a production and competitiveness factor and a driver for sustainable growth.

Participative mediation process will be experimented, between local stakeholders, communities and regional administration and institutions promoting co-governance.

The participants in the REACH network are encouraged to provide links to best practices to demonstrate examples of how to empower local communities in the safeguarding, valuing and protecting their CH.

Members of the REACH network are invited to participate at various levels in the pilots, contributing with experiences, responding to surveys and questionnaires, attending conferences, workshops and local encounters.

Addressing the challenge of how to give culture and CH a greater, more relevant and even transformative  role – in  the economy, communities, and territories - requires solid foundations. In this respect, REACH  proposes to adopt an integrated model of a resilient European CH milieu which will be developed through the dialogue and collaboration with the participants in the REACH network.

REACH is willing to establish the widest range of collaboration with other projects in the domain of CH research.
