2° Cultural Routes Academic Workshop

Online worshop
We invite you to attend the 2° Cultural Routes Academic Workshop, which will take place online on 7th December 2023.

About the workshop

Following a successful first edition in 2021, the European Institute of Cultural Routes (Technical Agency of the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe programme) in cooperation with the University Network for Cultural Routes Studies is organising its second academic workshop with the purpose of bringing together scholars, researchers, and students to exchange and share their research outcomes in the field of Cultural Routes studies.

The workshop will be held entirely online on Thursday, 7th December 2023, via the Zoom platform and streamed through the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe Facebook page @CultureRoutes.


The program will feature the presentation of theoretical perspectives, state of the art research reports, case studies and research work relating to Cultural Routes from a variety of disciplines and universities across Europe. Presentations and discussions will revolve around four main themes:

  1. Redefining cultural routes: exploring dynamic narratives of religious heritage and cultural assets.
  2. A holistic approach to sustainable tourism and community engagement along cultural routes.
  3. Cultural routes for all: digitalization and accessibility for an inclusive cultural experience.
  4. Addressing challenges and shaping the future of cultural routes through cooperation and innovative approaches.
A preliminary programme of the workshop can be found HERE.

We are pleased that, among other things, the results of the workshop "Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe: Cultural Heritage, Landscape and Tourism" will also be presented. A project from 2022 in which the European Cemeteries Route also participated. 

Participation at the workshop

European Cemeteries Route has been a certified Cultural Route of the Council of Europe since 2010. Therefore, we would like our representatives to attend the workshop with some interesting presentation topics.

We invite anyone who would like to participate in the workshop to send their presentation proposal in English to ioanna@significantcemeteries.org till 9th November 2023, so that we can review it before the official submission of the abstract to the organizers of the event.
