The project – CUBES – Cultural administration Boosting with the Engagement of Sustainability for local communities– is financed by the European Commission, through funds granted by the National Erasmus + Education and Training Key Action 2 (KA2) – Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices (Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education) with reference number 2019-1-LT01-KA204-060716-927555420.
Cultural administration and sustainable development constitute one of the priorities in EU 2020 Agenda, UN 2030 Agenda, SDGs and UNESCOs Conventions. CUBES derives from the need to create and disseminate know-how regarding the sustainable administration of tangible and intangible cultural resources in order to really empower all sectors of society to own and administer their cultural resources in sustainable ways, aiming at both cultural democracy and cultural sustainability. The empowerment and actual involvement of different sectors in the governance of culture is still largely undeveloped; one reason for this is the lack of know-how that would enable the more active and knowledgeable involvement of local communities members in the sustainable administration of their heritage and cultural resources. This kind of empowerment of various sectors of society could further foster grassroots ownership of cultural assets, gradually enabling the administration of cultural heritage within a sustainability framework.
