The project aims to raise awareness of cultural heritage and prove the economic benefits of its promotion.To prevent brain drain and replace outdated skills and mind-sets with a new, shared vision for development, HERIPRENEURSHIP helps establish a new paradigm for cultural heritage management and communicate heritage significance to the public and ensure the uptake of CB heritage offers created by the Digital Mega Integrators (Netflix, Youtube, Arte; History Channel etc.). HERIPRNEURSHIP will involve actors from various administrative and social levels, so as to strengthen their capacity to effectively manage heritage for tourism and activate skilled workforces for sustainable development.
HERIPRNEURSHIP proposes a cognitive and educational framework for using of a place’s assets, which would guide final beneficiaries (regions, communities, SMEs) to identify, signify, valorize and manage the heritage potential of the territory, in order to use heritage potential as a vehicle for tourism strictly connected with a unified signage and interpretation system.
The project will create a “The UNESCO Experiential Heritage Corridor in the Black Sea Basin”, which will include:
The UNESCO Experiential Heritage Corridor in the Black Sea Basin connects places to visit in the participating countries, offering authentic and multicultural knowledge together with accompanying tourist services available in real time, such as accommodation, transport, catering, souvenirs and traditional products, outdoor and indoor artistic activities, etc. It creates a unique opportunity to stop the practice of generating and offering low quality tourism products. Tourism services related to cultural heritage will be developed in cross-border areas by sharing cultural values, natural monuments and ecosystems, sites and collections of traditional crafts, inspiring new forms of offering and encouraging young people to preserve heritage.
