The Routes4U e-learning course addresses key issues for the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe and for the stakeholders from the EU macro-regional strategies working in the cultural heritage and tourism fields. The course is free and open to anyone interested in the Cultural Routes programme and its link with regional development, cultural cooperation and social cohesion.
The first module, “The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe: step-by-step guidance on the certification and the implementation”, provides relevant information on the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe programme, and answers questions such as:
- What are the Cultural Route of the Council of Europe?
- Which is the added value of being certified by the Council of Europe as Cultural Route?
- What experiences do the Cultural Routes offer to tourists?
- How can a project become a certified Cultural Route?
The module also presents best practices of certified Cultural Routes through the voices of their managers and presidents. A dedicated section further explains the link and importance of the Cultural Routes for the European Union Strategies for the Adriatic-Ionian (EUSAIR), Alpine (EUSALP), Baltic Sea (EUSBSR) and Danube (EUSDR) Region.
