The aim of the Landscape Stewardship Exchange in Boka Kotorska was to foster a more active involvement of citizens in the landscape protection, management and planning (stewardship), specifically through a direct involvement in the process of identification of cultural landscape values. The LSE programme focused on the area of Boka Kotorska, including the territories of the municipalities of Kotor, Tivat and Herceg Novi, as an extremely valuable cultural landscape, which is currently facing many challenges and risks related to its protection and planning.
Starting from a broader understanding of the concept of cultural heritage, where it "includes all aspects of the environment resulting from the interaction of people and places over time", cultural heritage represents the most comprehensive category of cultural heritage. The latest international conventions stress that it is necessary "to include all members of a society in the ongoing process of cultural heritage identification and management ".
