Final Report - PICTURE (Pro-active management of the Impact of Cultural Tourism upon Urban Resources and Economies)

Project ID: 502491
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

The European Commission gives more and more importance to the impact of cultural tourism on the urban environment. This issue is at the origin of a project like PICTURE which can propose solutions and good practices in this field. Small cities, of 10 000 to 50 000 inhabitants, and medium-sized cities, of 50 000 to 250 000 inhabitants, accommodate more than 60 % of the European population. The first objective of the project was to expand existing knowledge about the dynamic effects of tourism within such cities with regard to the conservation and enhancement of built heritage diversity and quality of life. Their final report lists the objectives and the activities undertaken as part of the project.
