The final report of the ALTERheritage programme is now completed and available in English, German or Spanish. ALTERheritage was a programme of exchange led by the Future for Religious Heritage (FRH), a European network of organisations that work with religious heritage buildings. The programme was carried out between 2013 and 2015 focused on sharing vocational tools for evaluation and planning. The aim was to make existing material for vocational learning on religious heritage conservation and management available to a larger proportion of the sector in Europe.
Europe’s religious heritage shares threats of under-use, but also problems with managing large numbers of tourists. Increased international and inter-sectorial exchange is necessary to find good-practice models for building the capacity of the practitioners.
The ALTERheritage programme consisted of a series of meetings, hosted by the partners. They presented guidelines, learning tools and methods that the partners could adapt to their own circumstances. The project supported academically well-anchored, high quality tools that can build the capacity of vocational learning in the field across Europe.
