Ways to get involved


1/ Promote

Social Media

Support the movement by sharing our articles, videos and website on social media. If you are part of a society or organisation use your network for better visibility.

 2/  Open Minds

Cultural Events

Rediscover your heritage and that of other people by joining cultural events taking place near you. Great places to start are your local museums, galleries and universities. Look at your calendar and mobilise especially young people around you to create a dynamic and generate discussion (many museums propose highly affordable activities for young people).

3/ Witness


Share your HeritageStory with us. Film yourself or someone else discussing an aspect about your heritage. Share it on social media with the hashtag #HeritageStory. Please see here to see examples of Heritage Stories. We will relay the best videos on social media.


Use your network by relaying information about culture and heritage in the form of photos to gain as much visibility for heritage as possible.

Culture Heroes

Share with us a portrait of an outstanding person who has been or is contributing to raising awareness for heritage and its preservation and valorisation. The best portraits will be relayed on our website, and social media, with the possibility of more to follow in 2017.
