ARCHEODANUBE Archaeological Park in urban areas as a tool for Local Sustainable Development

DANUBE cultural heritage in the cities is rich and diverse, but under pressure due to lack common policies, know-how and resources) All the partners are confronted with the same challenges: how to incorporate and present the archaeological heritage into the contemporary social environment, how to incorporate in the urban parts of the cities,how  to integrate preserved remains within buildings and areas of the towns for presentations  (example: integration of sustainable mobility), how to provide the sustainable development and  how to achieve the economic impact and visibility beyond the local level (cultural tourism).
The project will improve and intensify cooperation among relevant actors in DTP in order to preserve, support and valorize cultural heritage through archaeological parks as products in cities for development of archeotourism.The project paves way for preparation of concrete plans, trainings, tools for preservation and presentation and concreate small pilots, for improving effectiveness of heritage sites management in support implementation of new initiatives in tourism (archaeotourism). All results are representative for other Danube regions and relevant for the entire area.
Having said this, the consortium convenes in understanding archaeological parks as are a tool through which the local communities can manage, control and protect their heritage resources. Moreover, they are a good to connect the local culture, which represents an important period of human history, with the global culture.
In order for our heritage values to remain preserved and be accessible to contemporary and future generations, it is imperative to develop and advance an integrated planning concept. The project will provide a understanding of archaeological parks as an integrated concept between archaeological heritage/urban development of the city and cultural tourism. The partnership consist of 15 actors  (+7 ASP) from 11 DTP countries.
