Each year, the Cultural Routes Annual Advisory Forum is organised in close collaboration with one of the member States of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes (EPA).
The Annual Advisory Forum enables the reunion of member States representatives, Cultural Routes operators, candidate networks to the certification “Cultural Route of the Council of Europe”, international organisations, local and regional authorities, civil society organisations, chambers of commerce, foundations and other donor organisations and heritage and tourism organisations and platforms.
The Annual Advisory Forum discusses trends and challenges in relation to Cultural Routes and provide a platform for the exchange of experience, review of progress with the implementation of Cultural Routes, debates on new professional practices, the launch of new initiatives and the development of partnerships.
In 2021, the Annual Advisory Forum on Cultural Routes will take place in Kutaisi, Georgia, in an online format. All official members of the AEPJ are invited to participate in this Forum, at the highest political and technical level. In this link, you will find all the information related to this year’s program. As you will see, the first day is reserved for closed meetings, but on the second and third days sessions will be held, of special relevance for those members who develop Jewish heritage routes. The Forum will focus on the topic of Resilient and sustainable Cultural Routes – Innovating our way out of the crisis
During the program, videos with best practices of projects in which we participate will be shown. Also, as Georgia is the host country, our Georgian members of the Israeli House will show a video about their work and the development of their route.
