motion of cultural, natural and historical heritage in the border region of Burgas and Kirklareli (Green Corridors)
Start date: Jul 10, 2011, End date: Jul 10, 2011 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project aims to promote the natural, historical and cultural heritage in the target regions. This will to a significant extent awake the environmental consciousness of both, the population in the border area as well as the potential tourists. Within the process of project implementation, the inefficient current cooperation in management of natural resources and the coordination for environmental protection purposes is being improved. Furthermore, the concept of “green corridors” for developing sustainable mobility, quick, easy and safe access to natural sites, as well as connecting the urbanized parts of the cities with the naturally significant territory. The concept presents an innovative method for sustainable transport in order to preserve the air quality, public health, and the protected areas in a coordinated and sustainable fashion. Achievements: As part of the project a study was carried out of the natural, cultural and historical heritage of Burgas region in the field of tourism, environment, and preservation of cultural and historical monuments. Nearly 60 landmarks were identified and classified, and a detailed dossier was prepared for each of them.Alongside the study which was carried out in Burgas Region, the natural, cultural and historical heritage of Kirklareli district was analysed. Two expert forums entitled "Opportunities for the creation of green corridors" were held in Burgas and Kirklareli. A concept for a network of "green corridors" was developed. Developed interactive guidebook allows Internet users not only to receive detailed information about the identified landmarks of the natural, cultural and historical heritage in the border region, but also to enjoy a virtual tour of the interconnecting network of bicycle routes, combined together in a system of green corridors. The International conference entitled "Green Corridors -Practical Solutions for Ecological Tourism" brought together experts, policy makers, urban planners and representatives of the tourism industry in the cross-border region. The project has been successfully accomplished in July 2012.
