CULTURE AND NATURE - Local Communities for Heritage: Good Practices in Central Europe


International conference on "CULTURE AND NATURE. Local communities for heritage: good practices in Central Europe" was held on March 29, 2023 at the Cieszyn Castle, Poland. The idea of Nature and Culture was taken from the work entitled "Kultura a Natura" from 1913 by Jan Gwalbert Pawlikowski (1860-1939), an outstanding publicist, economist and politician, one of the precursors of nature conservation in Poland. When choosing the place of the conference, we decided that Cieszyn and the cross-border Cieszyn-Těšín Silesia combine the idea of Culture and Nature in a great way, and that the region inspires actions for the protection of heritage and the development of ecotourism.
