The Foundation for the Protection of Silesian Industrial Heritage organizes the online seminar Railway heritage and tourism as a part of the project Railway Heritage for Sustainable Tourism Development – RAIL4V4+V.

The focal target group of the seminar is the owners and users of railway locations that are part of this project (five sites from each of the partner countries – Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland and Serbia)

The seminar will be organized in two parts:

  1. Lectures by experts in the field of railway heritage – presentations of examples of good practice in the field of protection of railway heritage and tourism in Poland
  2. Open dialogue between all participants, focusing on specific topics related to participatory practice and the role of owners and users in the development of railway tourism.

The seminar aims to strengthen the participation of the target group, raise awareness and motivate for support in further project activities (marking the location, organizing open days).
