Following the Annual Advisory Forum which took place in Sibiu, Romania, on 2-4 October 2019, the “Declaration of the 9th Annual Advisory Forum Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe” recognises the vital role of the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe in the expansion of cultural tourism.
Cultural tourism is thus a central concern for the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe; a concern that not only acts to propel the sustainable development of communities and regions across Europe but that also acts to promote cross-cultural understanding, inter-cultural dialogue and the development of partnerships and collaboration
Cultural tourism along with sustainable cultural development is a priority field of action for the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe which fosters synergies, new experiences and opportunities for the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe and their international partners in the interests of the cultural tourism sector across Europe.
The complete text of the “Declaration of the 9th Annual Advisory Forum on Cultural Routes: Cultural Routes FOR Cultural Tourism” is available on the dedicated webpage.
