Dear all,

We have just published a new blog on the Open Knowledge International blog
on Hetor, a case study within the RouteToPA project that is focused on the
promotion and preservation of the cultural heritage of the Campania region
(south of Italy) via the use of open data.

The term Hetor (‘heart’ in greek) is connected to the principle of ‘truth’,
meaning a shared and participatory construction of knowledge. The project
aims to motivate and engage public administrations, local communities and
schools in co-producing open data to enhance the local cultural heritage of
the Campania region.

Interestingly, the activities of the Hetor project are based on a 'format'
easy to reduplicate: they use free instruments and social networks open to
everybody and a platform to collect open data. The work could therefore be
implemented by others as well, co-creating data in order to enhance their
own town. The blog is available at

RouteToPA (http://routetopa.eu/) is a European innovation project aimed at
improving citizen engagement by enabling meaningful interaction between
open data users, open data publishers and open data.

Best, Lieke Ploeger.
