From the 28 to the 31 June, Be.CULTOUR team took part in the conference organised by Mirabilia, the European network of UNESCO Heritage Sites and representing 18 chambers of commerce from all over Italy, on sustainability as an element of competitiveness for cultural tourism.
Circular cultural tourism in BeCULTOUR project defines a sustainable and regenerative cultural tourism model that aims to foster sustainable and equitable regional development implementing a “human-centred” circular economy model through the enhancement of abandoned, underused and less-known cultural and natural resources, enhancement of human capital and human rights, reduction of tourism pressure on over-exploited territories, reduction of wastes and natural resources consumption (energy, water, soil, biodiversity), increase of clean energy and green transport means, recycling and reuse of materials and products, and enhancement of locally based food and craft productions – finally empowering local communities, enhancing ecosystems, enhancing local identity, wellbeing, health and cultural diversity, and enhancing local entrepreneurial innovation ecosystems through cultural tourism.
On 12 and 13 June 2022 the Institute for Research on Innovation and Services for Development of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR-IRISS) will host the side-event of the New European Bauhaus Festival “Energy, Beauty, Participation: Cultural Heritage Adaptive Reuse as a driver of Circular Regeneration and Sustainable Regional Development”.
