Bodø 2024 and the network of Cultural Routes in Europe


The European Union National Institutes for Culture – EUNIC Cluster Norway is presenting an international round table with panelists and experts debating on the role and potential of the European Capitals of Culture and the network of the Cultural Routes in Europe. The discussion will investigate the relation between cultural heritage promotion and sustainability, sustainable tourism, technology and cultural promotion, with the aim, among others, to gain and spread knowledge about the possibilities of using media and digital techniques in the area of tourism. During the event some European Routes and the territories they cross by will be presented, along with two of this year’s European Capitals of Culture, the Bodø 2024 and the Bad Ischl Salzkammergut 2024 projects. A further investigation will be done into the long-term effects that these projects aspire to, or have already achieved. The event is in collaboration with the Norwegian Directorate of Culture.

Closing up the event, a small reception, and a virtual tour with VR visors will be offered.

Participating countries: Austria; Latvia; Spain; Portugal; Italy; Norway.
