Abstract [en]

This paper aims to contribute to the debate on the socio-cultural impact of museums on sustainable regional development. Museums play a significant role within socio-cultural and environmental sustainability contexts. Specifically, they foster a collective sense of place, collective memory, social integration, education and environmental awareness. They help sustain cities as dynamic socio-cultural centers, acting as “instruments” for cities in the revitalization process. In addition, they encourage cohesiveness among different sectors of society, tolerance, democracy, and economic growth. The authors recommend that governmental and non-governmental institutions include cultural heritage and museums as key factors in their future priorities in pursuing sustainable development at local, regional, and national levels.
