European Cultural Heritage: Opportunities for Citizens’ Engagement and Social Inclusion

Network of Towns

“This project has been funded with the support from European Commission. This publication reflects the views only of the author, and the Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained therein.”

The project stems from the belief that the creation of a Community Cultural System (CCS) can assure a fruitful and stable cooperation between Local Authorities and CSOs from the Cultural and Social Sectors, working together for social inclusion of migrants, Roma, mentally or phisically disabled people, Neets and vulnerable groups in general, through the valorization of the Cultural Heritage.

An initial research on the impact the “2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage” had on each partner community will be carried out by every organization;
My Culture, My Europe, My Future” will be the campaign the partnership will implement for giving its disadvantaged citizens the opportunity to have their say at local and EU level.
