Heritage Hubs

You find our RURITAGE Rural Heritage Hubs in various corners of the world. The Rural Heritage Hubs are local communities that have joined RURITAGE as either Role Model or Replicating areas. The Role Models are territories recognised as prosperous cases that have regenerated with the help of cultural and natural heritage. Prosperous practices of the Role Models are analysed and furthermore transferred to six selected Replicators. These Replicators represent local communities within rural territories that are in the process of building their own heritage-led regeneration strategies, although in need of support to improve their skills, knowledge and capacity building.

 

Every Rural Heritage Hub is a community of local stakeholders as well as a physical meeting place where co-creation activities take place. It is therefore a living lab where local stakeholders and inhabitants cooperate for developing new heritage-led regeneration strategies for their territory. To explore our Hubs with the help of below map. To learn more about Role Model and Replicators in general, please go under The Rural Heritage Hub folder on the top of the page.
