The AtlaS.WH - Heritage in the Atlantic Area, focuses on finding global methodologies and solutions to addressing common challenges that affect Urban World Heritage Sites, namely by stimulating heritage-led economic and cultural development. The AtlaS.WH programme, which is co-financed by INTERREG - Atlantic Area programme, was recently highlighted in the newsletter "World Heritage Cities Programme - Urban Notebooks", by UNESCO as regards the sharing of information and best practices in cultural management at world level.
