Between the 26th and the 28th April took place the third transnational meeting in the framework of the Erasmus+ KA2 2016-2018 project "Traditional Settlements, Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Development" (2016-1-EL01-KA204-023477), in which the Institute is a partner institution. The Institute was represented at the meeting by dr Michał Koskowski, who summarised our activities in the period since the previous transnational meeting in Plovdiv in October 2017. Primarily, our presentation was devoted to the fieldwork we carried out in Siedlęcin and Ślemień last year, and the related extensive desktop research undertaken by our team that lead to an article that is going to form part of an e-book, addressing the key challenges and showcasing examples of good practice in heritage management in Europe today. The meeting also included an inspiring case study from a Sicilian town of Petrosino, also a partner in the project, represented by its Mayor, Mr Gaspare Giacalone, who was also an acting host of the meeting. The event concluded with a workshop about project dissemination techniques, led by Thalia Theodoridi of the Centre for Environmental Education in Filiates, Greece. No meeting in Venice can take place without visiting the venerable City of Venice itself which - thanks to it being an off-season - could be done at a relatively leisurely pace. As one of the most visited tourism destinations in the World, Venice presents a range of issues related to settlements and sustainability, that form the core of the KA2 project. Against all the odds, however, Venice remains an unquestionable and unimitable wonder of art, engineering and architecture.
