Researchers from Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Anton Melik Geographical Institute held the 1st SY_CULTour workshop in their pilot area in Črni Vrh (Idrija). A participatory approach was used in the workshop. 23 participants were encouraged to identify and name preferred cultural values with developmental potential in their local environment. 22 such cultural values were identified and at the end of the workshop each participant got a chance to rank them. Dark sky observing was ranked as highest followed by flax farming and processing, Trnovski marathon (cross-country skiing), Matuckarjeva ethnographic path, Feldbahn trail etc.
In the following workshop that will take place on November 27th in Črni Vrh it is planned to decide together with local stakeholders, which cultural values should be developed into touristic product.
