The European Young Heritage Professionals Forum 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.
The European Young Heritage Professionals Forum is organized by UNESCO in partnership with the European Union within the joint project ‘2018 - European Year of Cultural Heritage: Engaging Youth for an Inclusive and Sustainable Europe’. It will be hosted by the Croatian Commission for UNESCO and the Croatian Ministry of Culture. The Forum is developed in close cooperation with the non-governmental organization Diadrasis.
