Have you ever heard of the problems tourism can generate in city centres? Or a conversation about local souvenirs that may actually be produced elsewhere?
C.U.L.T.U.R.E. aimed to reflect the role of “culture” in its widest meaning, such as a common matrix for the selected cities forming the consortium, all awarded with the World Heritage label by UNESCO.
The project was a Transnational Cooperation project co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the MED Programme.
Special attention was given to culture as a driver for economic growth. The chosen approach was to integrate the knowledge, the practices, and the financial tools used by the different levels of local governance. Local public players shared the same issues, needs, and objectives.
The Consortium was formed by the local authorities from countries such as Italy, Spain, and Greece.
My role was to support the financial and administrative follow-up of the Municipality of Tarragona (Spain), as well as technical support to the project coordination.
