The Regional World Heritage Institute in Zacatecas (IRPMZ), the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, the UNESCO Office in Mexico, the National Institute of Anthropology and History and the Directorate of Culture of the Organisation of Ibero-American States (OEI), are organising the International Forum on Sustainable Tourism and World Heritage, which will be held in an online format on 2 and 3 August 2021. This forum aims to strengthen the work of the social sectors to become involved in the protection of World Heritage at this time of challenges and new needs, as well as to broaden their interest in the importance of the relationship between culture and nature.
In this framework, the Directorate of Culture of the OEI, with the support of the European Institute of Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe programme, the Ministry of Culture of Spain, the AECID, the European Routes of Charles V / European Routes of Charles V and the collaboration of the OEI Office in Mexico, is holding a workshop coordinated jointly with the expert on Cultural Routes and Itineraries and member of the scientific committee of our network of routes, Jordi Tresserras Juan, to promote Euro-Latin American cooperation in this area.
Likewise, our managing director, Quintín Correas, will participate on 3 August, from 12:30 to 13:30 (CET Madrid) with a talk in which, in a practical way, he will explain how a cultural route is capable of dynamising a territory in all aspects: social, economic, cultural, etc. He will give examples of activities that can be carried out in the territory. To do so, he will offer examples of activities already developed by the Emperor Charles V Routes Network, such as historical recreations performed by the students of Jaranda de Jarandilla de la Vera Secondary School, Imperial Cooking or Imperial Kitchen, which are engines of development and involvement of the local population in this type of activities.
Here is the full programme of activities (in Spanish).
