St James Workshops in Greifswald
On 28th-29th June, at the University of Greifswald, the second meeting of Steering Group was held. The meeting was accompanied by workshops within the frames of RECReate Project – the Re-vitalisation of the European Culture Route in the South Baltic Area. The purpose of the workshops was to share and transfer good practices and experiences regarding the creation and management of the Way of St James in Germany.
The two-day meeting was opened by professor Wilhelm Steingrube, the host, from the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt University of Greifswald. At its meeting, Steering Group accepted the minutes of the first meeting and voted through changes to the budget of the Project. One of the important issues was the information on the activities taken so far by Project Partners and Lead Beneficiary and guidelines on reporting.
During the workshops, the representatives of the University of Greifswald, namely professor Wilhelm Steingrube, dr Ralf Scheibe and Gabriel Gach presented German experiences with the Way of St James. The workshops proved to be a great opportunity for exchange of opinions and discussion on the implementation of the Project and promotion of the Way. On the second day of the workshops Ms Ulrika Bodieschek, representing Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Tourist Board, gave an interesting presentation on pilgrimage tourism.
Despite the demanding program of the visit, the guests could afford to take a walk along the Way of St James, following the signposts showing the way to Santiago de Compostela.
The meeting was attended by the representatives of all Project Partners: the Municipality of Lębork- the Project’s Lead Beneficiary, County Office in Lebork, Self-governments of Pomorskie and Zachodnioporskie Voivodeships, Szczecinska Foundation, the Pomeranian Regional Tourist Organization in Gdansk, the City of Kretigna (Lithuania), the University of Greifswald and representatives of the University of Szczecin and media.
