We will arrange 12 peer-learning visits between September 2020 and April 2021 and will invite representatives from local and regional authorities and from cultural heritage organisations to attend.


What are peer-learning visits?


Peer-learning visits are an opportunity for groups of experts, decision makers and stakeholders to visit another city/region and see first-hand how it has successfully implemented its policies and projects. They provide an intimate and trusting setting to discuss pitfalls and failures, provide feedback and build solutions together. Each visit will last three days and two nights. Half of the time will be dedicated to an introduction to the host city/region, introduction of the visiting cities/regions and to the visit themes and on-site visits. The other half will be dedicated to dynamic forms of peer learning designed to stimulate interaction, collaborative learning and solution-building. I am a representative from a local or regional authority. How can my city/region host a peer-learning visit?


Peer-learning visits will take place in cities/regions featured in the catalogue of good practices. When filling in our call for good practices, you should indicate your willingness to host a visit. A call for host cities/regions will then be launched among the 30 cities/regions featured in the catalogue. I am a representative from a local or regional authority or from a cultural heritage organisation. How can I attend a peer-learning visit? Participants to the visits will be selected through a call for interest that will be published in May/June 2020.


Participants will be selected according to their expertise and to their specific learning needs. Travel and accommodation costs will be covered by through the project.
