Global heritage issues

INTO seeks to build awareness of heritage issues across the world including emergency response to the Indonesian earthquakes

Connecting people

INTO is a union of conservation bodies that share much more than just a name and here volunteers are working with the National Trust of Fiji

Inspiring next generations

INTO member organisations work with young people to build awareness of heritage issues, like this An Taisce Green School group in Ireland

The International Conference of National Trust #17 OUR CULTURAL HERITAGE, THE KEY TO ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY: The ICNT 2017 will take place in Bali, an island in Indonesia with particularly strong cultural roots.. Religious rules and rituals are embedded in family life, social interactions of all types, arts, occupations, and practical skills. Its rich tradition is also expressed in the integration of culture and the environment.

INTO Programmes and Campaigns

INTO serves as an indispensable resource among National Trust and like-minded organisations, bringing people together to share information, best practices and inspiration. We offer an invaluable bank of knowledge and experience to strengthen existing National Trusts and similar bodies towards the achievement of their objectives, and to empower communities seeking to develop new Trust-like organisations.

News from our Member Trusts

The INTO membership includes established organisations which have been practising heritage conservation for many years as well as new and developing Trusts. No one has all the answers and there is as much for the mature bodies to learn as the fledgling ones. Here a National Trust apprentice joiner from the UK shares experience on an INTO Working Holiday in Tongli, China.

Our Amicus Programme

The INTO Amicus Programme brings together a very special group of individuals who care deeply about the important international work that INTO performs. Amicus members contribute financially in support of INTO and share in being a direct part of this special group.
