“Free and urban” – a Culture for cities and regions study visit in Regensburg

From 8-10 June 2016, 10 European cities and regions went to Regensburg, Germany, to see how the city preserves its UNESCO World Heritage, attracts tourists and remains a vibrant and creative city at the same time. Discussions were very fruitful and open, and recommendations from participants were made.


 Cultural heritage

Whilst cultural heritage has been defined as something inherited from the past, it is in many ways a contemporary and “living” cultural resource in Europe. 
 Cultural and creative industries

The economic contribution of the cultural and creative sector (CCS) in the European Union in general and to regional development in particular is widely acknowledged.
 Culture for social inclusion

Culture-led development strategies have direct and indirect impacts on social inclusion, social innovation and intercultural dialogue.
