Kick-off meeting of the RURITAGE project
The RURITAGE Kick-off meeting was held in Bologna. According to a recent article in The Times, the University of Bologna is one of the most beautiful buildings in Europe. It is considered the oldest university in the Western world. Thanks to the organizer, we had the pleasure not only to visit the university but also some other splendid buildings in the city.
The meeting was a very busy time for all the partners involved in the project – four days spent on discussions about conceptual and operational sides of the project, collective community management approach and capacity building activities.
On the 5th of June we participated in the open conference “Cultural heritage as a driver for rural sustainable growth: challenges and opportunities in Europe and beyond.” As part of the event, we had a unique opportunity to listen to some inspiring lectures delivered by Mr Pierluigi Sacco (IULM & University, Special Adviser to the EU Commissioner for Education and Culture) and Mr Christer Gustafsson (Professor at Uppsala University). We are very grateful for the opportunity to cooperate with all the partners and for the invitation to the consortium. The meeting was professionally prepared and organized “Thank you” to prof. Simona Tondelli, RURITAGE Coordinator and her wonderful team for this inspiring experience!
