    Agenda

    The conference will showcase the importance of volunteering as an appropriate tool for the awareness raising, the documentation, the rescue and the conservation of cultural heritage as well as for the nonformal education in the ?eld of heritage. It shall serve as a platform to present good practice examples, to exchange experiences and to stimulate further heritage volunteering projects all over Europe.

    Good practice examples of heritage volunteering projects from Germany and other European countries will illustrate the potential of volunteering for cultural heritage. ?e examples will demonstrate the applicability of volunteering for various types of heritage, for various heritage-linked tasks and for di?erent constellations of cooperation between non-governmental organisations, public authorities, foundations and enterprises active in the ?eld of heritage.

    ?e conference will gather representatives from organisations and institutions that either organised in the past, or plan to organise in the future, projects in the ?elds of volunteering for heritage and heritage education, representatives of state authorities and heritage administrations as well as citizens with personal experience in volunteering for cultural heritage. A special focus is placed on projects for young adults, students and young professionals.

    The conference will be the ?nal event of European Heritage Volunteers’ overall project “Best practice models of volunteering for European Cultural Heritage” in the frame of Germany’s o?cial programme for the European Year of Cultural Heritage as well as the opening event of the European project “Sharing Heritage – Sharing Engagement / Beyond the European Year of Cultural Heritage”.
