Despite being an important factor in the development of a town, culture is often an underrated theme of little impact on strategic or territorial documents. Czech Healthy Cities Network in cooperation with expert partners from Culture Matters and Kvas looks for a solution to this situation. The outcome of these efforts is two new methodologies which will be tested for the first time in Litomerice and Jihlava Healthy Cities. The testing of both methodologies is funded by the Healthy Cities project “Good quality LA21 in municipalities and regions” supported by the funds from the Operational Programme “Employment”. Following the testing, the methodologies will be offered to all Healthy Cities interested in this theme. (23.6.2016)
