The Policy Learning experts in environment and resource efficiency have published a report entitled Built Cultural Heritage: Integrating heritage buildings into contemporary society. The report takes a look at instruments and initiatives targeting cultural heritage buildings and some examples of how to leverage built cultural heritage as a resource, including several gathered by SHARE partners.

The report also presents good practices from the FINCH and Innocastle projects, which are joining SHARE in presenting a workshop during the EU Week of Regions and Cities in October 2020. The joint appearance of the three projects in the Policy Brief endorses their different approaches to studying aspects of the intersection of heritage properties with the lives of the people around them.

Another Policy Brief, published in March 2019, examined slow-tourism cultural routes and their enabling regional policy. That report featured Umbria’s Via di Francesco, another good practice associated with SHARE.
