About Work Package 4

This work package aims to promote sustainable integrated management of ICH in the tourism industry. It aims to identify the ICH suitable for economic exploitation through tourism; while at the same time respecting, maintaining and promoting the diversity of cultural heritage and identity of local communities.

Regions and territories and the communities that live there have a ‘sense of place’ through the social and cultural impressions on it. Evidence shows that visitors are looking for this local community experience. It is through ICH that this project’s common areas, challenges can take advantage of common opportunities. The Atlantic Area has common ICH threads running through it. From this project development stage, it is clear that there are commonalities in ICH, and common threats facing that ICH. But this project intends to exploit those common opportunities. This work package intends to research the AA ICH, provide an inventory in order to allow the industry to sustainably use ICH for economic benefit for the people who live, visit and work in the AA.

To fully understand how ICH can be sustainably exploited for economic benefit, we need to understand its past and present, ICH changes as communities change.

The ICH inventory will encourage sustainable cultural management and empower groups and communities. The inventory will identify risks, and provide unique ways for this projects model to be used. This inventory will be based on the regional inventories.
