The Heritage 2020 vision concentrates on five strategic areas for collaboration, each of which will be developed further by a cross-sector working group looking at new ways of working together on the priorities of each theme.
A summary of the working groups’ initial priorities for collaborative working was made available at Heritage Day 2016 and is available here: Heritage 2020 initial priorities, 2016. Action plans for the working groups are now available on each group’s pages and as a single document here: Heritage 2020 Working Group Action Plans.
