CLINK - the future of cultural heritage in the Balkans and the rest of Europe

 During the General Assembly of ALDA in May, representatives of the EU, LDAs and their partners had a chance to meet and discuss the issue of cultural heritage preservation in their home nations as a part of the CLINK framework. This dialogue took place on the 15th and 16th of May 2019 in Caen and was held between eighty representatives from Croatia, France, Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, and Albania. The main focus of the debate was the citizens’ participation in the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage in the attendees' communities. The outcome at the end of the discussion was a draft of action steps and recommendations aiming at improving the implementation of individual projects on the local level. Some of the main recommendations included strategies to help the NGOs create strategic partnerships with their local stakeholders, creating summer schools and other programs for youngsters to help secure and retain acknowledgment of their cultural heritage, or ideas and good case practices to secure the financial support needed to run these activities.

 These are but few among many recommendations we had come up with during the meeting. Luckily, we had prepared a PDF with the full outcome for you to browse and get inspired!
