Each working group brings together organisations that have contributed to the development of the Heritage 2020 Framework and others who want to contribute towards its goals. There are currently 36 organisations taking part in the five working groups.

As work to take forward the priorities of the Framework has developed, we are now looking for other ways to involve more people in the work of the groups. The original terms of reference for the working groups are available here (to be reviewed in 2019): Heritage 2020 working group terms of reference.
