On August 30, the University of Murcia (UMU) hosted the first working day of the COST 18110 Action 'Underground Built Heritage as Catalyser for Community Valorization', in which the first steps were taken to boost La Unión's underground tourism .
The main objective of the project is to value the culture of the underground world and, therefore, the possibilities of emerging uses of the wealth of these lands of La Unión were explored with the creation of a living-lab (living laboratory).
In this sense, the initiative aims to involve society and create innovative projects that strengthen the wealth of these territories.
At the same time, the active participation of the population will make a Public-Private-People alliance effective.
Therefore, following this line, future actions will be focused on having a greater impact and will be carried out in La Unión with a broad participation of its inhabitants.
The first meeting was attended by the mayor of La Unión Pedro López Milan and the Councilor for Culture of the municipality, Leticia Egea Martínez.
Also attended by different personalities of the UMU, including the vice president of the project, researcher and teacher Susana Martínez-Rodríguez.
