Who are we?
We are an independent and non-profit association that brings together people from across Europe who are professionally involved in heritage interpretation.
Our membership includes:
- practitioners on the ground
- teachers, trainers, researchers
- organisations that use interpretation as a
management tool at heritage sites and museums, and
- others who want to help further our aims.
How do we do it?
We provide services to organisations and individuals
who are interested in developing, supporting and promoting
interpretation of natural and cultural heritage.
We encourage the exchange of experience and ideas,
and collaboration on a Europe-wide basis
to raise the profile and impact of professional interpretation
in European and international debates.
Our work complements the activities of national associations
for heritage interpretation in individual countries.
We also want to help those who live in countries
which have no association for interpretation.
We aim to establish common standards for interpretation across Europe.
