The CHOICE – Cultural Heritage: Opportunity for Improving Civic Engagement – project has been developed and later implemented in the four Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine. A partner consortium was made up of the following entities:

Association of Local Democracy Agencies, ALDA (France);

Centre for Cultural Management (Lviv, Ukraine);
National ICOM Committee (Chisinau, Moldova);
Educational Research Foundation Millennium (Yerevan, Armenia);
Public Association Centre for Social Innovations (Minsk, Belarus).
The project obtained funding within the framework of the European Union programme Eastern Partnership Civil Society Facility and was implemented in course of two years: between 2015 and 2017.

The project was mainly aimed at building the capacities and development of the non-government non-profit organisations and initiatives which are engaged in conservation, re-thinking and promotion of the cultural and historical heritage in their local communities, countries, as well as in the East European region.

Beside the civil society organisations, professional teams and communities, intellectuals and cultural activists from the four nations who focus on cultural landscape and its diversity rehabilitation and preservation, as well as correct and efficient use of the cultural patrimony resources for the development of cities, towns or other human settlements were involved in
