Interpret Europe Training days | 7-11 October 2022  | #ietrainingdays22

Heritage interpretation

Being touched by a heritage site, considering how it relates to us, and how it can help to shape our common future – this is what distinguishes good heritage interpretation. Heritage interpretation takes place in various locations, such as protected areas, historic sites, zoos or museums. It is supported by a broad range of approaches from guided walks to sophisticated exhibitions. Many people working at heritage sites are good interpreters and can encourage good heritage interpretation even if they are not aware that it is an increasingly important profession.

Interpret Europe – European Association for Heritage Interpretation

Learning from our heritage is essential for building European citizenship. Learning is most powerful where real things can be experienced first-hand, in places such as protected landscapes and historic towns, monuments and museums, zoos and botanical gardens. Interpret Europe brings all these sites and venues together. Joining Interpret Europe provides opportunities to share experiences on how to make European heritage more meaningful to people with a network of more than 800 professionals, enterprises and academic institutions in more than 48 countries. IE provides its members with networking and training opportunities, webinars, conferences and news. More information

Grup de Natura Freixe - Nature, land, people

The Grup is a charitable organization with more than 30 years’ history dedicated to the conservation of nature, focusing on the natural spaces of the River Ebro and encouraging conservation, research, education and sensitization of the natural and cultural heritage, using land stewardship as a management tool. Grup de Natura Freixe works with an inclusive vision, where the challenge is to involve owners, managers, experts and land users to develop long-term sustainable management. They promote the network of environmental volunteers and particularly encourage the inclusion of groups of young people at risk of social exclusion in conservation strategies. Currently, they manage more than 700ha of natural environment under the land stewardship and management of the Sebes and Flix Meander Wildlife Nature Reserve. Here they act to recover and improve habitats of interest (wet zones, forest spaces and open spaces) to encourage biodiversity.
