- Any other purpose that contributes directly to the development of the A.I.CARP in the geographical area of action of its associated entities.
The association has the following priority areas of action:
1.- Conservation, protection and valorisation of Prehistoric Cave Art and its natural and rural environment, understood not only as a physical environment but also as a human one.
- To increase public awareness and knowledge of the cave paintings that make up the first art of mankind in Europe.
- To encourage the implementation of management systems for rock art sites and their environmental and rural surroundings, based on the A.I.CARP manual of good practices.
- Protect and defend the evidence of prehistoric art, as part of the environment, in order to protect biodiversity and halt anthropogenic climate change.
- To carry out awareness campaigns against those actions that damage prehistoric rock art and the environmental framework to which it is linked, while at the same time developing specific and viable alternatives in each of the areas in which it carries out its activity.
- To promote the conservation, protection and management of cultural landscapes and, in general, the environment, in activities such as: recovery of wetlands, agro-environmental management, conservation of fauna and flora, tourism and the environment, new technologies, etc.
- To promote the knowledge of the first art of Humanity as part of environmental education, through courses, seminars, conferences, youth exchanges, work camps and the publication of research works.
- To collaborate with organisations, public administrations and other entities by providing technical experts and logistical support.
- To develop initiatives to disseminate, within and outside formal education, the main problems of conservation of rock art and its environment and their causes, as well as possible solutions.
2.- Support for the sectors of the population with the greatest difficulties for their development: women, young people, the disabled, the elderly and ethnic minorities.
- Promote the idea that during prehistoric times all human beings who have inhabited the planet have organised themselves socially in groups and that in all eras the contribution of all members was essential: women, men, children and the elderly.
- To promote interculturality among the different sectors of the population, with emphasis on those at risk of social exclusion.
- Promote leisure and free time activities, cultural activities, conservation of cave and prehistoric heritage in general, environmental education, as well as sustainable tourism, as an instrument to achieve the social integration of these groups.
- To train and inform these sectors in those subjects and/or activities that help to achieve an integral development in the environment that surrounds them, especially in the rural area where prehistoric rock art is concentrated.
- To organise social awareness campaigns in relation to these groups and prehistoric rock art and its environmental context.
- To favour the social and labour insertion of these groups.
- Encourage and promote equal opportunities between men and women.
- Promote equality and integration of national and international ethnic minorities in each of the member countries: promote the idea that the collective past is a set of data that is constantly structured, in order to establish collective identities (family, neighbourhood, ethnicity, nationality, profession, ideology, …). Archaeology contributes to legitimise, nowadays, a multiplicity of groups, highlighting at the same time, their radical anthropological unity.
The essential objective is to overcome prejudices and discover the capacity to do, create and think of women and men, equally, at the beginning of our History.
- To promote in all the actions of the A.I.CARP the overcoming of the image of a prehistoric society in which women were relegated to positions of inferiority, linked to tasks supposedly less important for human groups than those carried out by men.
- Promote an integrating vision of women, developing actions that help to increase the inclusion and participation of women in the economic, political, social and cultural spheres.
- To develop information activities, orientation to the labour market, training in new professions, work experience programmes in cave tourism enclaves and occupational training.
The main objective is to encourage the participation of young people in the knowledge, protection, conservation and dissemination of prehistoric rock art and the natural and rural environment in which it is located.
- To set up projects and activities specifically aimed at young people, in areas such as training and knowledge, education in values, respect for the evidence of Prehistoric Rock Art, the place where it is conserved and the environment.
- To carry out studies, issue reports, promote campaigns and other activities related to the problems and interests of young people, a very important aim being the permanent knowledge of what affects young people.
- To encourage communication, relations and exchanges between youth associations in the different counties and municipalities, through the knowledge and enjoyment of the first art of humanity.
- To promote the values of solidarity, tolerance and the spirit of cooperation.
- To offer training proposals on subjects that affect and interest young people, through conferences, meetings and seminars, to organise courses and publish didactic materials.
- To train volunteers and energise young people through dissemination, community participation and the opening of new lines of research and coordination.
The main objective is to facilitate access, both direct and virtual, to places with Prehistoric Rock Art for the whole of society, without exclusions of any kind.
- To raise the degree of social integration of people with disabilities, through accessibility and the elimination of barriers (physical and mental) that are a limitation to the possibilities of action of people with disabilities.
- Encourage actions leading to the full accessibility of sites with prehistoric rock art and, when this is not materially possible, develop museographic, multimedia or virtual products that allow theoretical and sensory knowledge for all.
- Bringing digital opportunities (new technologies and the knowledge society) closer, as these factors are determining and will further determine the society of the future, from which people with disabilities cannot be excluded.
- Promote leisure and occupy the time of people with disabilities, providing a channel for their social participation.
The main objective is to favour access to and enjoyment of Prehistoric Rock Art and the natural environment in which it is located for the elderly, encouraging the carrying out of specific activities.
- To provide solutions in order to create the necessary conditions that favour the autonomy of this group, as well as to encourage their participation and integration in the community.
- Promote, disseminate, stimulate, collaborate, participate and/or intervene in all kinds of initiatives that serve to bring this population closer to the recreational enjoyment of the cave heritage, as a strategy to collaborate in the improvement of the physical and mental development of this group and of all their faculties.
- To contribute to the cultural growth of the elderly through educational activities.
- To favour the social consideration of our elders in our society.
- To promote the transmission of the knowledge and skills of the elderly to the next generations regardless of their validity (intangible heritage, skills in disused materials, crafts, oral tradition).
- To promote a culture that recognises and maintains an active role of the elderly and their participation in the process of change that our society is undergoing.
- To make possible the contact of the elderly with new technologies and all those processes of the modernisation of society.
- To favour solidarity and intergenerational dialogue as a way of promoting social integration and the valuation of society.
Archaeology is a holistic discipline, and less ethno-centric than other humanistic disciplines. Its intervention highlights the dual nature of the vestiges in which Prehistoric Rock Art is embedded: local, which reinforces the centripetal tendencies of identity mechanisms, and global, which reinforces the notion of the unity of the human species,
- Consult minority communities in order to eradicate poverty, particularly in areas where victims of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance predominantly live.
- Provide solutions to bring about the necessary conditions conducive to their participation and integration.
- Promote, disseminate, stimulate, collaborate, participate and/or intervene in all kinds of initiatives that serve to bring these populations closer to the recreational enjoyment of the rock heritage,
- To contribute to the cultural growth of all the members of these groups through didactic and pedagogical activities, adapted to their cultural synergies but always from a perspective of integration and solidarity.
3.- Use of new technologies.
- Establish and promote the generalised use of new technologies for the development of all kinds of activities for the study, protection, conservation and dissemination of Prehistoric Rock Art.
- To support the creation of infrastructures and applications that facilitate bringing the values of Prehistoric Rock Art Heritage closer to society through new technologies.
4.- Valorisation of cave sites and the natural and rural environment in which they are located.
- Establish collective actions that favour new cultural and tourist promotion and marketing systems for prehistoric cave sites and their natural and rural environments.
- To develop systems and quality marks that guarantee the adequate conservation, protection and cultural and tourist use of cave sites and their natural and rural environments.
- To carry out actions of knowledge and promotion of the cave enclaves and their areas of location, taking into account the associated natural and cultural heritage and, as far as possible, promoting and enhancing the dissemination of the same.
- Promote the valorisation of tourist resources and the agri-food and craft products of the natural and rural environment in which the cave destinations are located.
5.- Cooperation with developing countries.
- To contribute to the social, cultural, institutional and political progress of developing countries.
- To promote scientific cooperation and activities with developing countries in the study, conservation, protection and sustainable tourist use of prehistoric rock art.
- To carry out solidarity actions with those who need the support and help of the A.I.CARP.
- To promote solidarity among the different populations and nations, especially among the member states of the Council of Europe.
- To collect material and economic aid to achieve the best attainment of the above aims.
- To exchange experiences.
6.- Promotion of tourism in the rural environment.
- Given that practically all of the rock art destinations of the Council of Europe’s Cultural Route “Prehistoric Rock Art Trails” are located in rural areas, the promotion of quality tourism in this area is a major area of action.
- Develop initiatives to encourage the development of archaeological tourism in rural areas.
- Encourage and promote the use of tourist accommodation in rural areas, in relation to the influx of society to rock destinations.
- To promote a model of tourism in rural areas that is sustained over time. To establish relations with Institutions, Associations or Corporations with similar aims in order to exchange initiatives, projects and services.
