On November 9 European Institute of Cultural Route in collaboration with the Council of Europe and the European Commission held a conference "Cultural routes: source of a new form of tourism development."

Europe offers a wide variety of cultural itineraries that, crossing several regions or countries, provide a living example of the rich and impressive European common heritage. For more than two decades 24 of such itineraries have been jointly collaborating under the Council of Europe’s (CoE) Cultural Routes Programme aimed to preserve the diversity of European culture and heritage, and to promote understanding of Europe’s history. Today, when cultural heritage is more often viewed as a new form of cultural good, methods of heritage management are changing to incorporate new elements, which could help local communities to draw more obvious benefits from their cultural legacy while preserving and maintaining its uniqueness. Often these elements come from tourism: a new kind of tourism, which is respectful to the environment, the natural and cultural heritage, and local traditions.

This session offered an overview of the elements of sustainable and respectful cultural heritage management as they are being developed and incorporated into CoE cultural routes heritage management and performance evaluation. The emphasis on sustainable and responsible heritage management - the focal point of which is social well-being and economic development of local communities, their environmental and natural resource protection, - makes the CoE Cultural Routes Programme different from similar international initiatives.

Speakers:
- Penelope DENU, Executive Secretary EPA and Director EICR
- Dr. Ksenya KHOVANOVA-RUBICONDO, expert, Council of Europe/EICR
- Adeline PORCHEZ, The European Route of Ceramics
- Marion VANSINGLE, The European Route of Historical Thermal Towns
- Gérard BAUME, The santiago de Compostela Pilgrim Routes
- Dr. Eleonora BERTI, project coordinator of Cultural Routes EICR
