6th Conference

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.

HERITΛGE, having already contacted five international conferences and a series of educational programmes, is proposing a new strategic approach that is focused on the human-citizen and his interaction with the environment, the cultural procedures and the ones that continue to be produced.

Launching this new strategy in 2019 with HerMa Hub: Fostering Communities and in partnership with Eleusis 2021 European Capital of Culture we will attempt to present innovative theories and practices of activating local communities with particular emphasis on their importance for preserving and promoting culture.

Distinguished academics, as well as pioneering researchers and professionals in the field of culture, along with groups of citizens active in the field of heritage and the community affairs will be invited to Elefsina to attend the Conference and submit their ideas for two days. by lectures in round tables, presentations and workshops.

The Conference is free.
