Within the framework of the cycle of conferences: “Greece and the contemporary Greek world. History and Social Sciences “, organized by CERMOM (INALCO), Yannis Zirinis, development expert in Athens, gave on 12 February 2020 a lecture entitled: “Cultural routes, an example of the development of cultural tourism in Greece. “
The debate that followed was moderated by Didier Francfort, professor of contemporary history, University of Lorraine / CERCLE (co-author of Médias, pouvoirs aux Etats-Unis et en Europe occidentale, 1945-1991, Paris, Armand Colin, 2018; Les formes du voyage : approches interdisciplinaires, Strasbourg, Presses Universitaires de Strasbourg, 2010).
The cultural routes, designed by the Council of Europe in 1987, “demonstrate, through time and space, that the heritage of different European countries contributes to the common cultural heritage”. Diazoma, an association of citizens, set out in 2012 to work on synergies between regional and national authorities for the implementation of this cultural and touristic tool. Today, cultural routes are already part of the regional development policy of three regions of the country.
Yannis ZIRINIS is an expert in development. He has worked in both private and public sectors. An engineer by training, he is currently a consultant to the Greek Ministry of Development for the preparation of the next investment program for European funds 2021-27. Between 2015 and 2019 he worked, as a volunteer for the Diazoma association, in the design and implementation of cultural routes in several regions of Greece.
