ESACH Quarterly Magazine and UNIDROIT 1995 Convention
Since June we have been working on the issue n°2 of The ESACH Quarterly, our digital magazine which aims to expand the knowledge-sharing of youth-led approaches to Cultural Heritage. And for August, we have exciting news to share! We've partnered up with UNIDROIT and we are now encouraging submissions related to the 1995 UNIDROIT Convention and the topic of cultural heritage restitution as well! We believe this to be a crucial theme in the current debates regarding heritage, and we are looking forward to reading your contributions to that! You can find all the specific guidelines on our website. Don't miss the chance of having your paper published with us!
Deadline: 30th of September 2021.
Member Survey: What now? The impact of Covid-19 on cultural heritage students and steps forward
During this summer ESACH launched its very own member survey to better understand how the pandemic's situation has affected the lives of young heritage professionals in Europe. Since the heritage field has been one of the most deeply affected by lockdowns and travel restrictions, our team wants you to have a say in the activities and strategies that we will develop in the upcoming months. We sincerely believe that getting to know our members' experiences is the key to a better and faster recovery!
#HeritageAmbassadors and the European Heritage Tribune
Our European Heritage Ambassadors have been sharing their inspiring experiences in the field of cultural heritage at the European Heritage Tribune. Since February they have been working as mediators between heritage students, young professions, and cultural heritage institutions. You can learn more about the activities and projects they are engaged with by searching the hashtag #heritageambassadors on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin!
ESACH Blog ft. European Heritage Tribune
Check out our latest ESACH blog reading recommendation featured on the European Heritage Tribune website! The article "Connecting Heritage and Youth Through Minecraft: Mi.Momo.Faro" by Tiago Candeias refers to a project that aims to enhance community participation in modernist architecture by using game-based learning tools. In this project, the famous game "Minecraft" was brought inside public schools to engage more than 120 high school students with their city's heritage.
Opportunity with the European Heritage Tribune!
One of our dear partners, the European Heritage Tribune, is looking for volunteer reporters to cover the European Heritage Days in September and October! Reporters will work in pairs creating 5-minute video reports of different heritage-related events in five European countries. The contributions will be done by visiting one of those events and interviewing organizers and visitors. The videos will be shared on their website and social media channels, and travel costs will be reimbursed. Those who are interested are encouraged to contact Jetske Berger, editor in chief, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Have you heard of Heritage Thursdays?
In July ICOMOS has launched their "Heritage Thursdays" program. The organization will offer a webinar on the last Thursday of each month. The goal is to demonstrate how ICOMOS has been implementing people-centered approaches and to discuss relevant problems such as inclusivity in the heritage scene. Last month's webinar was all about "Gender and Cultural Heritage", and their upcoming session (on August 26th) will deal with "Trauma and Heritage".
