What We Do

 

What does ACTE do?

In cooperation with the Council of Europe (CoE) and other national and international organisations, it develops resources, which will enable local communities to conceive, implement and manage their own cross-frontier projects in the field of culture and tourism.

ACTE also provides a platform for individuals to create their own international projects, based on ACTE principles: peer-to-peer cultural cooperation, sustainable local development and equity in cultural exchanges.

As a member of ACTE and committed to its principles, you can help build the community. The ACTE is its membership. It is linked across regions, across sectors, across frontiers and across cultures in a common desire to build a cooperative cultural economy, which benefits all and enables all to benefit.

Creating Capacity Training

The first activity is training for local people, to enable them to provide an authentic, ecologically sound and high quality tourism experience.

Local agencies

ACTE helps set up local agencies, based on its own model, to: manage the cultural and local tourism environment; provide training and self-help skills; and develop networks, partnerships and business plans and resources.

Exchange Platforms

The ACTE will set up exchange platforms of all types to enable individuals and communities to benefit from an international exchange of information, goods, services, skills, resources, and know-how.

European Funds and Other Resources

ACTE will provide a platform for the diffusion of information on European and other funds and will, wherever possible, broker investment partnerships. Through its electronic network it will promotes inter-community, cross-frontier cooperation in the creation and sharing of resources.

Where does ACTE work?

ACTE has begun its work in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Serbia, Turkey and Ukraine. Its focus on developing creative capacity across wine cultural routes has meant that it has been asked to cooperate in many other European wine producing states. French wine makers have offered to assist in the development of the ACTE programme. The ACTE is its membership. It is linked across regions, across sectors, across frontiers and across cultures in a common desire to build a cooperative cultural economy, which benefits all and enables all to benefit.
