The INTERREG project, ECRR, aims to establish a European Cultural Route of Reformation by identifying, selecting, and connecting existing Reformation-themed cultural heritage sites, objects, and non-material legacies around Central Europe. In order to secure the effective execution, consolidation, and expansion of the Route after ECRR’s lifetime, a stable and durable transnational management structure will be developed and established by the consortium. The intercultural dialogue of involved actors, stakeholders, and institutions beyond the project’s scope is actively fostered and creates the foundation upon which the Route will be established.
The project applies an empowering bottom-up approach, in which local and regional stakeholders are actively engaged throughout its time frame. Furthermore, capacity building, knowledge transfer, and the establishment of mutual learning platforms are integral cornerstones of this project. These pillars promote open spaces for shared learning and training on the preservation of cultural heritage, stakeholder alignment, and Promotion of low-carbon tourism. The final objective for the project is the recognition as a European Cultural Route by the Council of Europe, for which the application will be submitted by the end of 2019.
On May 17, ECRR hosted its final conference in Gosau, Austria. More than 100 participants from all project regions and beyond gathered to celebrate the achievements of the past three years and made plans for everything that is yet to come for the Routes of Reformation association.
The Routes of Reformation, product of ECRR, has officially been certified by the Governing Board of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe (EPA) on April 10, 2019. This is a tremendous honor and opportunity. More can be found here.
