This event is one of the outcomes of the Action Programme 2016-2019 that is related to the four main themes of the Strategic Research Agenda of the EU Joint Programming Initiative, Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPI-CH).

The focus of the event will be discuss the opportunities and challenges of heritage participation and learn from examples from all across Europe.
The questions to be answered will be:

  • How can heritage professionals and policy makers be stimulated to include the meaning(s) people attach to heritage as an essential element in the way they handle heritage?
  • How can citizen participation engage population groups that are difficult to reach (young people, migrants…)?
  • Which best practices are available in Europe?
  • how can experiences with citizen participation in other sectors can be use in the heritage sector? what can they teach the heritage sector?

Prof. Neil Forbes, coordinator of the REACH project, will contribute to the event as a speaker, presenting: “Participation, commitment and resilience: cultural heritage and community in Europe
