The 3-day Summer School event “Heritage-based regeneration at regional level: learning from practice” is arranged within the H2020 funded RURITAGE project by Savonia University of Applied Sciences. During course you will be introduced to the RURITAGE methodology supporting rural areas to co-develop through their local heritage. The course is devoted to practices within the opportunity-driven innovation areas: landscape, local food, art & festival, and pilgrimage.

Based on these areas, we will have several lectures from pilots in the RURITAGE project that have successfully regenerated their area through these innovation areas. Savonia will give lectures based on their expertise on local development, especially as the Region of Gastronomy 2020-21. The idea is that you will be able to apply lessons in your own areas and surroundings back home.

Target group

Practitioners, such as private sector actors, companies in the field of tourism, hospitality, outdoors, art & festival, regional development institutions, RDI staff of universities of applied sciences, representatives of project pilots.

Learning objectives

• To learn from other regional development projects throughout Europe through landscape, pilgrimage, local food, and art & festival perspective as a driver
• To take part and learn from practical experiences and reflect on how they could be further adopted to your own local context
• To exchange knowledge, experiences, and further network for future opportunities
