NWHA - Annual Conference 2018

10 - 13 September 2018 kl. 19:00 - 23:00 CEST
Jelling, 7300 Jelling, Denmark

This September, you are headed to Denmark where three World Heritage Sites are welcoming you.

We will address World Heritage through the eyes of children and address the challenges that may occur when a particular group has a special relation to the World Heritage Site.

Under these headings, you will hear interesting presentations, actively participate in workshops and our local World Heritage will get under your skin when visiting church halls with sand on the floor, climbing the burial mound of the first Viking King and joining children, as they use a World Heritage Site as a site for learning and playing. The Site in Jelling is hosting the first conference day and the Site of Christiansfeld is hosting the second conference day.

This year, all participants stay at Vingsted Hotel & Conference Centre, situated in beautiful surroundings near Jelling.

Registration deadline: Friday 6. July 2018​ at 23:00 ​




Heritage in Progress 2018

Update: early September 2019
Grebbestad, Sverige

Update: Due to an unfortunate scheduling of the conference, The Heritage in Progress Conference will be moved to next year. A new preliminary date is in early September 2019.


Early September 2019 we welcome you to HIP - Heritage in Progress - a conference on understanding and intercultural competence. For three days we will immerse ourselves in how a world heritage or a cultural heritage site can be used as a potential tool for intercultural dialogue. Welcome to Tanum World Heritage!


The three-days meeting will contain exciting lecturers and different ways to engage civil society by means of time travel methods, discussing the role of cultural institutions in a diverse society as well as hands on workshops. The programme will be full of speakers and inspirations that will make this event into one of the most important conferences of the year.


By inviting representatives from all the world/cultural heritage sites in Europe and beyond into the collaboration intercultural dialogue, we believe we create possibilities for a continued development and generate more knowledge around the cultural heritage as a meeting point and the connection between cultures; then, now and for a sustainable future.

Deadline for registration is to be announced 2019.
