Sustainable cultural heritage development in practice
Krakow is developing several initiatives through its municipal culture service and its Municipal Greenspace Authority, capitalising on the city’s natural and cultural heritage and landscapes.
Initiatives to be discovered during the visit:
- Pocket parks in Krakow: The pocket parks programme aims at creating small, friendly green areas to create urban bonds with natural spaces. These intimate green areas are located in local neighbourhoods’ forgotten spaces, revealing a sometimes-forgotten cultural heritage.
- Symbiosis ecological education centre: located in a historical building located in a park, redeveloped in an environmentally friendly way, the centre offers exhibitions and workshops to residents around nature, ecology and sustainable development
- Villa Decius Institute for Culture (IKWD), a municipal cultural institution offering among other residences for artists, uses cultural heritage and culture for benefit of communities.
- Solutions developed by the Krakow cultural sector in response to the dynamic change in operating conditions caused by the pandemic.
