Open Call - European Young Heritage Professionals Forum 2019

Dear all,
Following last year's success with the World Heritage Youth Forum, Diadrasis is very happy to announce a new close cooperation with UNESCO in partnership with the European Union for developing The European Young Heritage Professionals Forum within the joint project ‘2018 - European Year of Cultural Heritage: Engaging Youth for an Inclusive and Sustainable Europe’. The Forum will be hosted by the Croatian Commission for UNESCO and the Croatian Ministry of Culture.

It will take place from 20 to 24 May 2019 in Zadar, Croatia to explore potential synergies and challenges of working on tangible and intangible cultural heritage in the European context. The Forum will enable participants to enhance project management and communication skills by working on their own heritage projects with experts and peers from across Europe. In addition to building a community, the young professionals will be encouraged to become active ‘cultural heritage messengers’ by spreading the message on the importance of cultural heritage protection and safeguarding in their own communities and beyond.

If you are interested, you should submit the online application form together with the requested documents by 28 March 2019 at 23:59 CET. Successful applicants will be informed by the beginning of April 2019. Please share the news with anyone interested in an exciting youth experience!
