Information Day Being Organised for Omisalj Archaeology Parks

June the 13th, 2022 - An information day is being organised for the Omisalj archaeology parks as part of a wider project with the aim to increase the level of interest of locals in preserving local cultural identity.

As Morski writes, an Info Day within the scope of the wider TRANSFER project, which is being implemented as part of the Interreg Adrion programme, will be held on June the 14th, 2022, at the Mirine archaeological site in the Municipality of Omisalj, starting at 09:00.

The aim of this event is to increase the participation and interests of local communities and relevant stakeholders and to further strengthen cultural identity. In order to raise awareness of the importance of Omisalj archaeology parks and sites and convey the concept of their integrated protection and valorisation within the project, the upcoming event will present the objectives and activities of the aforementioned project and illustrate the need for a participatory approach to Omisalj archaeology park management.

The Municipality of Omisalj, as one of the twelve partners of the TRANSFER project, is participating in the preparation of the document related to the Joint Sustainable Management Model, which resulted in the management plan of the Mirine - Fulfinum Archaeological Park. As part of the project, the municipality is also participating in Pilot actions that will be carried out across six Omisalj archaeology parks, including Mirine-Fulfinum.

Lessons learned from the Pilot Actions, together with inputs from local communities, relevant stakeholders and the experience of young people during study visits, will be used for the final revision of the Common Model. In addition to the above-mentioned activities, the municipality will participate in the development and implementation of a virtual reality app that will enable a virtual walk through the archaeological area of ​​Mirina - Fulfinum.

The TRANSFER project, in which the Municipality of Omisalj participates as one of twelve partners, is being co-financed through the European transnational programme (ADRION), which promotes cooperation between 8 countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia.

The overall goal of the Transnational Cooperation Programme is to strengthen European integration among the aforementioned partner countries through innovative policies and management processes, as well as to further increase the economic, social and territorial cohesion of the Programme Area by using rich natural, cultural and human resources in the Adriatic and Ionian Sea.
