The implementation of project “Networking in preserving the First World War multicultural heritage in the Danube countries - NETWORLD” started on 1st of January 2017 with the financial support of the Danube Transnational Programme and under the leadership of Soca Valley Development Centre (PRC) in Slovenia. Fourteen project partners from ten DTP countries and eleven associated partners joined efforts during the project, which will continue until June 2019, to support management of sustainable use of World War 1 (WW1) cultural heritage by combining it with quality cultural tourism.
Along with the main NETWORLD goals, the project aims to make WW1 heritage more visible and accessible for tourism in the Danube region, to increase attractiveness of the targeted regions based on the WW1 heritage and cultural tourism, to sensitize the target groups (mostly the younger generation) and general public on the impact of the WW1 and the importance of the historical events of the past. The Walk of Peace trade mark is going to be recognized and promoted in PP’s area as an international brand for thematic WW1 paths and monuments in Europe.
Total project budget is 1.869.398,00 EUR, from which INOVAcija has 114.278,00 EUR. ERDF funding is 85% of total budget.
