2015 – European Industrial and technical Heritage Year

Utan ideella krafter skulle vi inte ha så många arbetslivsmuseer.  Detta är en viktig del av European Industrial and technical Heritage Year som inleds 6 mars i Bryssel.

“Since the interest in the industrial heritage came into being, from the 1960s onwards in the United Kingdom, later in other countries, voluntary associations always have been at the spearhead of initiatives and developments. Without their devotion and efforts a large part of the heritage would have gone, forever. And without them we would  even today loose large parts of our industrial and technical heritage”.

2015, the European Industrial and Technical Heritage Year therefore will be and should be an hommage to the non-paid and unselfish dedication of so many, within organizations or individually.

Vad gör vi i Sverige? Kulturarvsdagen i höst kommer att genomföras på detta tema men i övrigt finns ännu inte så mycket planerat.
