About

The project CUBES aims to design and develop a training programme offered on an inclusive, interactive and user-friendly digital platform, in order to create and disseminate know-how regarding the sustainable administration of tangible and intangible cultural resources. Open and accessible to all, CUBES aims to empower all sectors of society to own and administer their cultural resources in sustainable ways, aiming at both cultural democracy and cultural sustainability. CUBES is co-funded by Erasmus+, KA2 Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices, KA204 Strategic Partnerships for Adult Education.

Main Goal

CUBES aspires to address one of the core issues posed by contemporary European cultural policies; namely, the need to empower and involve different sectors of society in the governance of culture. This issue is still largely undeveloped, also because of the lack of know-how that would enable the more active and knowledgeable involvement of members of the local communities in the sustainable administration of their cultural resources. This kind of empowerment of various sectors of society could foster grassroots ownership of cultural assets, gradually enabling the administration of cultural resources within a sustainability framework.

Contribution

Open and innovative practices in a digital era

CUBES promotes innovative methods and pedagogies, developing digital learning materials and tools as well as actions that support the effective use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in adult training and promote new technologies as drivers of improvement in training policies. Additionally, CUBES addresses this priority because its flexible digital development allows easy adaptability in multiple contexts and in many cases to multiple recipients, enhancing, in this way, the digital integration in learning, teaching and training at all levels and supporting sustainability and compatibility with upcoming digital challenges.

Supporting individuals in acquiring and developing basic skills and key competences

This priority is connected with the content and activities of CUBES, since individuals, members of the local communities and organizations will acquire the substantial skills and competences towards their own community sustainable development, and knowledge of efficient exploitation of the cultural resources.

Social and Educational Value of European Cultural Heritage, its contribution to jobs creation, economic growth

The project focuses on the value of culture for local communities, and the expansion of knowledge and know-how for participants and target groups pertaining to the contribution of cultural resources to the local growth.
