ACTE - The Association for Culture and Tourism Exchange

ACTE is an international NGO that promotes cooperation and equitable exchange. Its object is to provide the tools, capacities and resources that will enable individuals, local communities, associations and SME’s to get access to international markets on their own terms.

ACTE Tools and Resources

In cooperation with the Council of Europe and other national and international organisations, ACTE provides tools and resources that enable local communities to implement and manage their own cross-frontier projects in the field of culture and tourism.


ACTE developed its model working with communities along wine cultural routes. Vine or wine routes trace a dense network of interconnecting trails, across a large part of the Continent. These routes plot the development of European civilization: places of worship, heritage, learning, cultural and commercial exchange have, for thousands of years, been linked to the agricultural exploitation of the vine.
