Representatives of Polish and German self-governments, cultural institutions, owners and administrators of historical monuments, and conservation services attended the meeting. The participants talked about transborder cooperation relating to culture, the protection of cultural heritage, and tourism.

Finally, the speakers stressed the possibility of enhancing tourism attractiveness by disseminating information about the historical monuments located in the titular region.
