ECHO – Cultural Heritage for Inclusion and Participation

ECHO offers new high-quality learning opportunities and skills development for adults through creativity and arts by
utilising the social and educational value of the European cultural heritage, facilitating intergenerational learning and
encouraging new businesses based on cultural heritage. The project will create a training programme “European Cultural
Heritage” and an interactive online learning platform (including an educational online game), which will exploit the
European cultural heritage as a tool for creating new businesses, promoting society integration and social inclusion and
combating disadvantages. The general objectives of the project are:

1. To increase the accessibility of training in culture and arts;

2. To raise the opportunities to explore European intangible cultural heritage by using digital means;

3. To promote social inclusion of people with disadvantaged background through culture and arts;

4. To encourage intergenerational learning and transfer of traditional skills;

5. To motivate and empower people to start businesses based on intangible cultural heritage.
