Fantastic few days in Sweden bring 160 interpreters and communicators together
Earlier this week Marie attended the Interpret Europe conference in Sigtuna, Sweden. Hosted by the Interpret Europe committee in association with the Swedish Centre for Nature Interpretation (SCNI), the UK’s Association for Heritage Interpretation (AHI) and the USA’s National Association for Interpretation (NAI), the conference brought together 160 delegates from 40 countries.
The theme this year was using interpretation to make us all better global citizens. Through a varied mixture of presentations, workshops and structured field visits, lots of discussion was had on this topic and best practice shared amongst professionals from all kinds of museums, visitor centres, national parks and consultancies on how best to engage our visitors and promote positive stewardship of the environment.
Marie presented some case studies of our previous project work and discussed how interpretation can be used to build bridges – between different cultures and generations.
