CULTURAL HERITAGE AND TOURISM:
POTENTIAL, IMPACT, PARTNERSHIP AND GOVERNANCE

3rd Baltic Sea Region Cultural Heritage Forum

Vilnius, Lithuania
25–28 September 2007

Cultural heritage tourism is that form of tourism whose objects are, among other aims, the discovery of monuments and sites, as well as local and regional tangible and intangible cultural heritage.

In order to enhance the sustainable use of cultural heritage, heritage tourism activities should contribute to their maintenance, protection and interpretation. Cultural assets should be integrated into the social and economic objectives that are part of the planning of the resources of states, regions, and local communities.

The Forum aims at presenting sustainable practices and examples of cultural heritage tourism in local municipalities and on regional levels. It creates a platform for local, regional and interregional cooperation on cultural heritage tourism issues.

Target groups: local politicians, municipalities, decision makers at local and regional levels, municipal tourism information centers, entrepreneurs in the tourism business, museums, universities, and networks of heritage.

Arrangers: Department of Cultural Heritage under the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania together with the Monitoring Group on Cultural Heritage in the Baltic Sea Region States.

The working languages of the Forum are English and Lithuanian; interpretation will be arranged.

Registration is open from 11 April until 15 June online www. heritage.lt
