The IX Training Academy of the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe just started in Fontainebleau, France, with the participation of 32 certified routes and 70 representatives from all over Europe, hosted by the Impressionism Routes.
In a scenario where heritage embraces the territory in an incomparable way, the meeting of representatives of the cultural routes certified by the Council of Europe has started. The programme of the Training Academy includes strategic meetings, presentations of good practices and round tables where the role of the routes in sustainable cultural tourism, the international relations of the routes and the development of cross-cutting cooperation of the routes are discussed.
The AEPJ is present and actively involved. Victor Sorenssen, AEPJ director and Pavel Katz, from Jewish Heritage Network have presented the European project Jewish History Tours, in collaboration with Europeana, the European Digital Library, as a good practice and a replicable model for other routes. In this project, more than eight routes that make up the European Routes of Jewish Heritage are developing walking tours and audio guides, following a process of digitisation of Jewish heritage content.
