Apply by 15 July 2016


Europa Nostra is initiating a new participatory programme, called Social Media Volunteers for Heritage. Our partner for this programme is European Heritage Volunteers. The programme is part of our Network project Mainstreaming Heritage which is supported under the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.


Social Media Volunteers for Heritage are volunteers who work digitally to further the cause and the message of the European heritage world through a variety of social media. These volunteers publish – remotely from their own location – stories, photos and videos on cultural heritage issues in their own country and follow the media of their colleagues in other countries as well as of Europa Nostra and European Heritage Volunteers. The Social Media Volunteers for Heritage network will not strictly be an Europa Nostra activity, it will exist outside of our web environment.

What are we looking for?

In our opinion, civil society social media volunteers should be marathon runners, in it for the long run with a positive message, geared towards solutions and opportunities, tailored to the intended audiences. We need multi-taskers who look at subjects objectively, who want to tell and share stories, who are enthusiastic about the heritage in their own country and across Europe.

We are looking to create a reliable European network of volunteers, at least one in each European country, to be the ears and eyes of Europe's heritage community.
A kick-off meeting with the selected candidates will be held at the end of August 2016 in Weimar, Germany.

The Social Media Volunteers for Heritage will be selected by Europa Nosta and European Heritage Volunteers on the basis of an online application form, which you can find HERE
