Heritage 2020 releases summary of responses to 2016 consultation

At the end of 2016, Heritage 2020 ran a consultation to raise awareness of the Heritage 2020 initiative (a mechanism to bring organisations together to add value to their individual work by working together), gain input on the initial priorities for action, and involve more people in Heritage 2020.

The responses have now been summarized under the five Heritage 2020 themes. The summary document shows how the suggestions contributed through the consultation have shaped each group’s future activity. The summary document is available to view by clicking here.


Heritage 2020 is a major new initiative to strengthen partnerships and collaborative working across the historic environment sector in order to sustain and promote the historic environment of England, encourage access and broaden knowledge for a variety of audiences.
