Heritage is a relationship to events, through which, generation after generation, a population gives it a sense which distinguishes it from others, and, at the same time, which gives it a universal meaning. Heritage is the traces of the intermingling and successive contributions, which forged the unique character of each city. It is also the sum of the attitudes of the population & visitors towards their shared heritage.»

CULTURAL CITIES : GREAT PLACES TO MEET & SHARE Charter of European cultural cities and territories «We wish to see our cities as thriving cultural centres, and a meeting point between different cultures. We want to consider tourists not only as a mere economic activity, but also as an opportunity for exchanges between fellow humans. Each European Cultural City will: * carry out a cultural development policy for the whole of its population, with special attention to those with difficulties to access cultural activities. * endeavour to design and implement forms on how to welcome visitors and inhabitants and enable them to meet in a real and effective way.»

Inhabitants should be, more than just users: i.e. responsible and active citizens. * Each European Cultural City will rely on a qualified Heritage Mediation team. * they will invite local partners (public administration, universities, organizations, businesses…) in joining their Local Heritage Forum. * and work closely with the inhabitants to define and protect their local common heritage.»
