EcoHeritage seeks to promote Ecomuseums as a model of sustainable and collaborative management that encourages the recognition and protection of Cultural and Natural Heritage.
In this section you will find interesting training related to how to foster the creation of ecomuseums and other initiatives of participatory heritage management thus promoting economic growth and social cohesion in rural communities.
Below, you can see the contents index and the introductory video of each module. Once you access a module you will find:
The training modules are comprehensive and based on general principles for setting up an ecomuseum. They are applicable in different contexts, taking into consideration other educational initiatives fostering the use of endogenous resources for the social and economic sustainability of rural areas, such as initiatives carried out by local action groups or local governments willing to contribute to the active participation of local communities in their social, cultural, economic and political life.
The modules’ spirit also attends to the understanding of the relevance of ecomuseums in community based local heritage maintenance, the potential of ecomuseums as resources for the development of the territory, their rol in taking care of geological, natural and cultural heritage, their rol in heritage interpretation and communication techniques, and the pertinence of these institutions in shared processes of heritage recognition, management and protection.
Throughout each module you can find references to the practical experiences gathered in the case studies.
You can customise the learning experience according to your pace and needs: you can take a quick look over all the contents or carefully study the modules one by one.
