The purpose of postdoc project Cultural heritage – a medium for the introduction of sustainable development in a local place is to give a theoretical and applied definition of the role of cultural heritage in establishing sustainable development in a local place and the development of sustainable community. The case study that incorporates ethnographic research of the way of life on a karst farm and an evaluation of important elements from agriculture for contemporary establishment of eco-farming and eco-tourism, aims to set up a scientific basis for forming sustainable development on Karst region.

Through the practice of the creation and use of heritage, the key deficiencies and risks will be identified and the key advantages, opportunities and potential for the development of the Karst countryside will be highlighted. Another goal of the project is to define the role of the humanities and social sciences in developing technologies for sustainable management.
