Routes4U is a joint programme between the Council of Europe and the European Union. The 30-months project (2017-20) aims to foster regional development through the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe programme in the four EU macro-regions, according to the Faro Convention.
Routes4U contributes to the cultural cooperation and provides a platform for regional, transnational and international stakeholders.
In line with the Faro Convention, the project promotes the importance of local citizens and their affinity with their region as essential to understanding and rediscovering the cultural identity of the sites.
It will stimulate new activities, encouraging the cultural heritage and tourism sector in a sustainable way and ensuring that economic use does not threaten the cultural heritage itself.
