European Cultural Tourism Network

ECTN is a partner in the  Interreg IVc project CHARTS

The CHARTS project focuses on the role of culture and heritage in the formulation and delivery of added-value to regional strategies for sustainable tourism development and integration into local, regional, national and EU policies. Partners will share experience on how improved management of cultural tourism destinations contribute to protection and enhancement of cultural heritage & landscape, as well as sustainable regional development policies, especially in relation to challenges of climate change and the economic crisis.


The overall objective is to build on, capitalise and exploit the outputs, methods, results, policies and strategies of previous projects and initiatives in the field of culture, heritage and sustainable tourism development strategies and to transfer highly relevant Good Practices between participating regions and Europe-wide, as important added-value to effective regional policy formulation and implementation, as well as contributing to the Lisbon & Gothenburg Agendas
