Solution: WHAT the solution is about? HOW it goes beyond the state of the art?
RURITAGE establishes a new heritage-led rural regeneration paradigm able to transform rural areas in sustainable development demonstration ‘laboratories’, through the enhancement of their unique Cultural and Natural Heritage potential. Through the identification of 6 Systemic Innovation Areas (SIAs) (Pilgrimage, Sustainable Local Food Production, Migration, Art and festivals, Resilience, Integrated Landscape management) and the analysis of 11 Cross-cutting Themes in 13 Role Models (RMs), RURITAGE will showcase heritage potential as a powerful economic, social and environmental motivator for regeneration, sustainable development, economic growth and improvement of people’s well-being and living environment in 6 Replicators (Rs). Moreover, through the creation of 19 Rural Heritage Hubs (RHHs) and 1 Digital Rural Heritage Hub (Digital RHH), RURITAGE will foster collective management, responsibility and ownership of Cultural and Natural Heritage.
