The Italian Coordinator (Italian Agency for the Territorial Cohesion) introduced the key challenges, problems and opportunities areas as identified during the kick-off meeting of the Partnership. The main cluster topics presented were tourism, creative and cultural industries, transformation, adaptive reuse and urban reconversion, financial sustainability, resilience of cultural and natural heritage, and integrates/interdisciplinary approached for governance, funding and knowledge sharing in a cultural heritage based urban development.
Participants were then divided in three parallel discussion groups and asked to develop challenges under each of the topics presented to better define their scope. One representative per group was then invited to present the main outcomes of the discussion at the plenary session. The last three topics were instead collectively discussed.
The meeting was closed by the Coordinators, who summarized the main conclusions of the meeting and summed up the next steps foreseen for the Partnership, notably the finalization of the Orientation Paper.
The next Partnership meeting will take place during the summer. More information on this Partnership will become available as the Partnership work unfolds. In the meantime, please consult the full list of members here.
