ECRR aims at identifying, selecting and connecting existing Reformation-themed cultural heritage around Europe (sites, objects and non-material legacy) and establishing an European Cultural Route of Reformation. To secure the effective running, consolidation and expansion of the Route after the ECRR’s lifetime, a stable and durable management structure will be developed and established by the Consortium. The adhesion of actors and institutions beyond the Project’s boundaries is desired and will be actively strived.
An application for the recognition as an European Cultural Route by the Council of Europe will be submitted by the end of the Project. To reach its goals the project applies an empowering bottom-up approach, in which local and regional stakeholders are actively engaged throughout the project’s running time, aligned for the posterior Route’s running and their capacities increased through training events. Capacity building, knowledge transfer and mutual learning are cornerstones of this project.
