The Project “Black Sea Cultural Animation Program: Pilot model for mobilizing the common cultural characteristics for creative destination management in the Black Sea Basin” is implemented under Priority 3: Supporting cultural and educational initiatives for the establishment of a common cultural environment in the Basin, Measure 3.1: Promoting cultural networking and educational exchange in the Black Sea Basin communities of the Black Sea Basin Joint Operational Programme.

The project introduces the concept of cultural animation as an interdisciplinary approach towards studying and presenting the cultural heritage of five model regions in the Basin.  On this basis a common education program is to be developed and introduced with the aim to raise the capacity of students in social sciences (especially tourism) to develop new “products” of culture and attractions based on their regions’ indigenous heritage. This is done via targeted partnership of 7 representative organisations form 5 Black Sea regions who intend to preserve the BS CAP cooperation model upon completion of this Action.
