ESACH Talks! will now be followed with breakout room discussions! Participation is optional, but it is easy to join - just stay on the Zoom event at the conclusion of the Talks. The discussions will last for up to 30 minutes and will include an opportunity for participants to network and share ideas, experiences, and questions related to the presentations and topic of the month in smaller groups. We hope to see you there!
Breakout Rooms FAQs
Have you been enjoying the ESACH Talks? Looking for a way to further the discussion, share your own ideas, and network with other participants?
We are excited to announce that ESACH Talks! will now be followed with breakout room discussions!
How do I participate?
It is easy, just stay on the Zoom event at the conclusion of the Talks and you will automatically be assigned to a breakout room of 6-10 participants. Each group will have an ESACH discussion facilitator.
What can I expect from the discussion?
Each group will be unique! However, we will all start with introductions that will serve as a networking opportunity for our community. We want to hear the voices of all participants and will invite you to share experiences related to the presentations and topic of the month. Our facilitators will have guided discussion questions, but we will let the conversation flow with the interest of each group.
What if I don’t have much experience with this month’s topic, can I still join?
Absolutely! These discussions are a great place to raise questions and challenges. We don’t have to have the answers – this is a space to learn and exchange ideas.
What is the format?
Each session will last for a maximum of 30 minutes; you are welcome to stay for the entire time or as long as you are able. There will be introductions, an open floor for sharing ideas, and guided discussion questions. The atmosphere will be informal in contrast to the structured ESACH Talks.
Why should I join?
We want to hear from you! The discussions will provide a platform for the exchange of ideas across cultures and heritage specialties. They will give you an opportunity to share your experiences and learn from others. They will be a great way to meet and build connections with other young people in the cultural heritage field.

The speakers for the December round of the 'ESACH Talks! Heritage for Sustainable Development' have been announced. Congratulations to the selected presenters and a big thank you for all those who submitted their abstracts, we were impressed by the quality of the submissions!
The European Heritage Youth Ambassador Programme calls for students and young people from all over Europe and beyond to share their stories and experiences in the heritage field online (e.g. on social media, websites, or blogs). At the same time, each Youth Ambassador acts as a bridge between students and young professionals and European heritage institutions like ESACH, Europa Nostra and the European Heritage Tribune.
The European Students’ Association for Cultural Heritage (ESACH) is an international network of European students and young professionals working within the cultural heritage field. We are volunteers working towards enhancing interdisciplinary collaboration amongst cultural heritage students and young professionals through networking and sharing knowledge.
Covering 40 countries, Europa Nostra is the most representative heritage network in Europe. The organisation campaigns to save Europe’s endangered monuments, sites and landscapes, in particular through the 7 Most Endangered programme, run in partnership with the European Investment Bank Institute. It celebrates excellence through the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards in partnership with the European Commission. It also contributes to the formulation and implementation of European strategies and policies related to heritage, through a structured dialogue with European Institutions.
Description of the position
As part of the network of European Heritage Youth Ambassadors, you will have the opportunity to be a part of a new heritage movement, to represent the voice of young people within Europa Nostra’s activities, to share your heritage-related experiences on social media, and to be a reporter for the European Heritage Tribune in your own country. This includes sharing relevant news articles about cultural heritage from your base country with the European Heritage Tribune, assisting the EHT editor-in-chief with translating articles and creating open-format blog entries. The position is honorary and requires an availability of at least 10 hours per month. The programme will start at the end of January 2021 and will run for 12 months.
