A road with a lot of flags to the side, which is the entrance to United NationsIn March 2022 #HeritageChat discussed International engagement and collaboration. The chat was led in collaboration with Lizzie Glithero-West, CEO of the Heritage Alliance (HEF member) and Graham Bell, Director of Cultura Trust and member of the Europa Nostra board.

Lots of interesting points were raised in the chat. Participants discussed how can we make meaningful and ethical partnerships, and what role digital can play in this; what is the potential of international collaboration to improve resilience in the UK; what would be needed to improve international collaboration, and what barriers are still making collaboration difficult; how to measure the success of international partnerships. Considering the current difficult Ukrainian situation, participants also shared thoughts on the universal nature of culture, and what impact will this war have.
