The International National Trusts Organisation (INTO)

There is a climate and nature emergency. How can we use our spaces, experiences and voice to adapt to withstand climate change, build community and strengthen resilience for heritage and nature?

The 2024 INTO conference is hosted in partnership with Petra National Trust. We look forward to welcoming  delegates to Le Royal Hotel in Amman, Jordan. The conference will take place on the 3rd – 6th December 2024.

A major pillar of programming in this conference will be Withstanding Change, our project in partnership with INTO members from Africa and the Middle East generously supported by the British Council’s Cultural Protection Programme. Come and experience how National Trusts are protecting heritage and opening up conversations about climate change thanks to this flagship programme.

The INTO conference is hands-down the best investment I make in my own personal and professional development, and in finding new ideas for my National Trust.
