The Heritage Management Organization (HERITΛGE) was established in November 2008 with the goal of enabling key heritage managers, through targeted training, to independently transform heritage assets from decaying objects of study to dynamic sources of learning, community identity and economic development.

HERITΛGE trains professionals in the management of heritage sites, independently of project specifics. Training practitioners in the essential skills and best practices which define heritage management is at the heart of the HERITΛGE mission.

Since its founding HERITΛGE has trained hundreds of individuals and organizations in more than 50 countries and is now on course to impact a quarter of global heritage hotspots by the year 2025.

Working with the concept of a new model for regional development in cultural heritage, promoted by Eleusis 2021 Cultural Capital of Europe, HERITΛGE since its 6th conference has developed a three to five-year public program focused on community engagement. HerMa HUB 2019 was the first planned event, which managed to bring together more than 30 groups and citizen’s initiatives active in community engagement in cultural heritage from all over Greece, and facilitate their networking and collaboration. At the same time, it began an active dialogue between those groups with recognized academics and practitioners from all over the world, as well as representatives of state institutions from Greece. HERITΛGE continues, in collaboration with Eleusis 2021, to elaborate activities and programs to facilitate the engagement of local cultural groups and initiatives in the production of heritage knowledge, in view of the new planned date for the Cultural Capital of Europe, in 2023.

The conference will be conducted in English but we will provide simultaneous interpretation in Greek through the Zoom platform.
