The VAST project virtual Policy Roundtable discussion titled “Values as a key part of our Intangible Cultural Heritage” was completed with success, on Thursday 28 September.


The Roundtable, which brought together esteemed policy makers, museum professionals, and educational experts from the cultural heritage domain, was a resounding success. Participants engaged in profound discussions on the pivotal role of values within the realm of cultural heritage, exploring the connections between these values, democracy, and policy in general.

Dr. G Petasis, Dr. Dora Katsamori, and Dr. Xenia Ziouvelou, of the project coordinator NCSR Demokritos, gave a presentation on the VAST policy approach and vision. They also participated in the break-out room discussions with the experts in order to create a set of concrete policy recommendations.

The fruits of this collective effort will undoubtedly resonate far beyond the virtual confines of this discussion, influencing actions that honor the values embedded within our diverse cultural traditions.

A big thank you to all the participants for their invaluable and insightful participation!
