Cultural Heritage in Action: Hermoupolis, Syros, among the 32 best practices

Posted on Posted in News - Releases

The project “100 buildings – 100 stories. Places, people and digital
storytelling” from Hermoupolis, Syros island, is among the 32 best practices selected by Cultural Heritage in Action.

Following an open call for contribution launched in February 2020, the selected 32 local and regional practices are featured in the European catalogue of good practices. These are policies, projects, events or organisational structures developed by local and regional authorities.

The catalogue of inspiring local stories focuses on 3 main topics:

  1. Participatory governance of cultural heritage.
  2. Adaptive reuse of built heritage.
  3. Quality of interventions on cultural heritage.

The 32 initiatives, selected from more than 120 applications, were carefully evaluated by the Cultural Heritage in Action consortium members in collaboration with the European Commission.

Cultural Heritage in Action is one of the actions of the European Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage of the European Commission. It is a peer-learning programme that will allow over 100 local and regional policy makers to exchange knowledge on cultural heritage, with a focus on participatory governance, adaptive reuse and quality of interventions.
