They have experts with an abundance of knowledge, experience and case studies at their disposal that can help member organisations for guidance and consultations. The member organisations, are mainly located in Germany and northwest of Poland. They usually organise meetings for networks of monasteries within German-speaking countries and provide stakeholders with the opportunity to get to know each other, enabling professional exchange and mutual inspiration to create projects in collaboration.

It will do this by setting up and providing a relevant training scheme pinpointed at lacking skills and qualification needs of those people active in rural cultural tourism all over Europe.
