The online event, hosted by ICLEI Europe in collaboration with ERRIN and CNR, will discuss the potential of cultural heritage in driving circular tourism.

Be.CULTOUR project is close to our heart, which we presented in our article in 2022, as they promote participatory and community-driven practices. The new webinar initiative is an incredible way to share the information gathered by the project and invite experts in order to have a complete picture of circular cultural tourism, along with implementation methods and ideas ready for new projects to spring up across Europe and inspire others internationally.
We participate in most of the events, and they bring quality expertise and innovative examples!
