Short description: Innovative approaches to heritage valorisation in cities and regions entail an eco-systemic approach and collaborative engagement of citizens and other stakeholders in co-creation of knowledge and decision-making. Building on the insights from the Interreg WaVE project (WAter-linked heritage Valorization by developing an Ecosystemic approach), the online participatory lab session will engage the participants in an active dialogue to co-produce knowledge and ideas on citizen engagement for heritage valorisation, understood as a vector for moving towards sustainable and inclusive urban and regional futures.
