    The Great War Centenary in Flanders 2014-18

    The project ‘The Great War Centenary (2014-18)’ aims at promoting Flanders’ visibility across the international arena during the period 2014-2018 and thereafter, by conducting this commemoration as a top-level, yet serene event, within Flanders itself but likewise around the world. The concrete programming of the commemorative activities of the First World War Centenary is meant to project the name ‘Flanders’ upon a broader international canvass, creating in the process an enduring association with the theme of Peace. Another objective is to create amongst the present and future generations in Flanders an awareness of themes such as tolerance, intercultural dialogue, and international understanding, this with a view to fostering an open and tolerant society and an active international orientation. And, finally, there is also the further objective to considerably increase peace tourism in (West) Flanders.
