    • VIVA EASTPART Methodology and Territorial Cultural Systems in Republic of Moldova “CULTURE, in a larger sense, is considered as a whole complex of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features that characterize a society or a social group. It includes not only art& letters but also modes of life, fundamental rights of a human being, value systems, traditions and beliefs. UNESCO, Mexico City, 1982 World Conference on Cultural Policies
    • VIVA EASTPART METHODOLOGY CULTURE AND TERRITORY a broad definition of culture is linking it today to territories development. CULTURE enforces social ties, ensures attractiveness and competitiveness in a territory by participating to economic and social development. AIM OF THE METHODOLOGY to valorize an ensemble of specific characteristics of the territory is acting on (CAHUL district in our case) transform latent resources into active ones and preserve both nature characters of the territory - a material one (as built heritage, natural landscape, i.e.) and a symbolic one (as identity, authenticity or conviviality).
    • In order to determine the territorial vocations of localities involved in CAHUL project, a process of going over best practices at national and international level was the starting point for this approach. “Moldavan village”- a national programme addressing development , landscape and heritage in its contents and vision (2005-2015, in action since 2010) “ Safeguarding the Cultural Heritage of the Republic of Moldova” – a national programme creating a strategy, tools and partnerships for preserving cultural heritage and integrating heritage data into general urban plans “Wine road - Rediscover Moldova “
    • International experiences tackled two chapters: urban and rural rehabilitation processes and socio-economic development. In small city centers as Bayonne/ France or in Alba Iulia, Brasov, Medias, Sulina/Romania in the framework of “Beautiful Romania” UNDP programme. Village revival and rehabilitation projects as best practices: Rimetea/Romania awarded the Europa Nostra prize 1999 for the quality of the program implemented, Melnik and Kovatchevitsa/Bulgaria or the ethno-village of Moravski Konaci/Serbia. Heritage was at the core of all these projects and enabled local communities to live better and to develop sustainably.
    • As a general rule, these programs and projects implied not large scale operations but a signal of good practice and the start of a larger process, of rehabilitation and socio-economic regeneration, a “network of places” implying local authorities, communities, national authorities and international bodies in working together to determine the priority projects to be implemented, to achieve a sustainable development of the territory.
