NETWORLD—Networking in Preserving World War I Multicultural Heritage in the Danube Countries

The NETWORLD project contributes to the Danube transnational programme objectives and priority area 2 (Environment and culture responsible Danube region) by strengthening the joint and integrated approaches in documenting, preserving, managing and promoting the cultural heritage in the Danube region.

The main objectives of the NETWORLD project are to increase the awareness of World War I heritage and its sustainable use for the development of quality cultural tourism.

The NETWORLD specific project objectives refer to:

  • preparing a database, a strategy, and a management plan for WW1 architectural heritage
  • improving the cooperation between countries of the Danube region in order to commemorate the WW1 centenaries
  • increasing awareness and visitor numbers of WW1 heritage by providing diversified quality touristic promotion brochures and by demonstrating the common brand “Walk of Peace” in the Danube region
  • promoting the value of peace, based on common commemoration of WW1 through e.g. transnational events, scientific conferences, youth exchanges, education tools

Fourteen project partners from nine countries of the Danube region and eleven associated partners join their efforts to implement project activities and tasks, grouped in six main work packages.
