Fourteen project partners from nine DTP countries joint their efforts in the NETWORLD proposal to manage the sustainable use of the WW1 cultural heritage by combining it with a quality cultural tourism. Ten ASP participate. During the preparation phase the proposal needs was identified. In order to have a joint WW1 heritage evaluation there is a need to upgrade the national efforts and results on a DTP level with a heritage management plan, database, strategy, project, results capitalisation, educational events and conferences. The stock of information will allow the link to develop cultural touristic routes to battlefield and memory places. The access will be improved by using innovative ICT tools. In order to have a large public recognition on the effects of the WW1 a further need is to analyse the heritage sites availability for touristic purposes, and to attract the younger generation by educational materials, games, ICT applications, lectures on WW1 impact, testing and demonstration activities. The DTP website information will allow follow up activities. NETWORLD contribute to the DTP programme objectives SO2.2 by strengthening the joint and integrated approaches in preserving and managing the WW1 cultural heritage and resources in the Danube region as a basis for sustainable development and growth, in order to increase mobility, sustainability, common remembering and cultural tourism. NETWORLD apply a system approach in managing the WW1 cultural heritage by identifying the lacks/needs for change on the heritage topics and related target groups needs to have the linkage between the heritage management and sustainable cultural tourism. The possibilities to link people to people within different cultures in the DTP countries will be performed by a common strategy and database, increased mobility, cultural tourism, applying ICT tools,  demonstration and testing. The expected changes will be obtained by the performed activities and outputs.
