HERITΛGE will host a mini-conference on September 22nd to celebrate this year’s European Heritage Days. The conference will take place mainly in Greek and will revolve around the contribution of local communities in the promotion and preservation of living heritage.
Living Heritage is the official theme for this year’s European Heritage Days celebration is
Participants will explore the involvement of local communities in safeguarding and showcasing living cultural heritage, as well as the contemporary challenges they encounter in an increasingly globalized and standardized world.
We will examine good practices as well as the cultural spaces and assets that constitute a vibrant and integral aspect of our culture. Speakers will showcase specific initiatives that center on local communities and their contributions to the promotion and preservation of cultural heritage, potentially serving as a model for other communities.
Date: Friday, September 22nd, 12:00 (GMT+2).
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 95 countries and is now on course to impact a quarter of global heritage hotspots by the year 2025.
