Since October 1st CD-ETA project started the implementation of the additional activities approved in the context of 5th restricted launched by Interreg Europe Programme in order to further exchange experiences on how the crisis impacted the project addressed topics and on possible measures to face and recover from the crisis. The experience exchange process will be expanded through a pilot action implementing by Partner 4 Association of Municipalities of the Ribera Alta Region - MANRA, Spain with collaboration of the Lead partner, aiming to test digital presentation of the natural and cultural heritage objects as a solution for remote access by adapting the good practice IWalk.bg.
Thanks to the learning process MANRA gained new vision of heritage digitization, its importance and relevance in cultural, historical and economic opportunities. Awareness raising wasn't only for projects participants, but it went up into hierarchical chain structure and culminated in political decision to create Digitalization Department and platform RIBERANA. Their success led to look back to learning process and good practices exchange - IWalk.bg: 3D tourist and educational platform with purpose digitization of cultural and natural heritage objects, museums, cultural monuments and all valuable objects reflecting spirit and imprint of history. Design involves geographic map with digitized objects. It would improve dissemination of elements and include its geographical integration.
On October 14th 2021 was held the first working meeting between the teams of Lead partner and Partner 4 MANRA which was related to the implementation of the pilot action. The meeting had the purpose to formally launch the work on the adaptation of the good practice IWalk.bg to the Spanish situation in the MANRA region.
