Cultural Heritage & Tourism Working Group

Representatives of Brussels-based offices leading the work of the Cultural Heritage & Tourism Working Group.

Cultural Heritage & Tourism

The Cultural Heritage and Tourism Working Group has two main lines of action: Sustainable Tourism and Cultural Heritage as well as the policies and action that link the two areas. In this context the WG focuses on investigating R&I-related measures to mitigate the environmental and social impact of touristic flows and encourage the transition towards sustainable tourism and cultural policies and practices. To this end, the WG support ERRIN members in the uptake of digitalisation and the development of skills and competences in the Cultural Heritage and Tourism sectors. Finally, the Working Group aims at providing early information to members on cultural heritage and tourism policy future strands, financial tools, inter-regional joint activities, EU calls. Cultural Heritage has a value in itself, for Europe in terms of identity and societies that goes beyond its role in tourism. The WG strives to acknowledge this in the activities.
