ROCK Factsheet No. 2: Learning from each other

Cultural Heritage leading urban futures: The ROCK project focuses on historic city centres as extraordinary laboratories to demonstrate how cultural heritage can be a unique and powerful engine of regeneration, sustainable development and economic growth for the whole city.

This is the second of three factsheets, which will present the diverse facets of the ROCK project. This second one will refer to the knowledge exchange process among cities that are part of ROCK dealing with similar challenges, or the so-called ROCK Mentoring process.

Mentoring is understood as Role Model Cities (Lyon, Athens, Cluj-Napoca, Eindhoven, Turin, Vilnius and Liverpool) sharing their experience and know-how with the Replicator cities (Bologna, Lisbon and Skopje). In return, Role Model cities have also received feedback and input on how to further improve their own approach, resulting in a bilateral peer-to-peer process. The concrete practice-oriented learning activities that have been set up are of two types: Mentoring visits and Work-shadowing visits.
