About INTO Webinars
We run a dynamic programme of heritage webinars, in partnership with INTO members and international conservation bodies. INTO webinars support our members to meet and share learning digitally.
Dive in to sessions to gain practical advice in heritage management and be inspired by practice from around the globe. We’ve covered everything from access to remote sites, to re-imagining urban development in the wake of a crisis.
Many sessions follow INTO grant supported projects, and are an opportunity to see the network in collaboration.

We learned at INTO Online that many of our members want to increase and improve engagement with young people. And they want to know what other national trusts are doing so that they can learn from this experience and also feel empowered. We encourage you to ‘steal with pride’!
In this webinar, Tanya Lee and Kar Lok Pang will present their research into educational programming across the INTO membership. This includes case studies, tips and solutions which we hope will inspire and enthuse. They undertook this research as part of a partnership with the National Trust and Oxford University.
We will also hear from INTO members themselves, who will share their experiences and the innovative approaches they are taking. These include:
- Dörte Horsfield, Director of Education, Bermuda National Trust
- Marco Varasi, Education Manager, FAI – The National Trust for Italy
- John de Coninck, Adviser to the Cross-Cultural Foundation of Uganda
- Jamie Luck, Children and Young People Programme Lead, National Trust (England, Wales and Northern Ireland)
The presentations will be followed by guided discussions.
Please register in advance for the webinar via this link. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the session.

Understanding climate risk
On 24 June we partnered with the environmental sustainability network, Fit for the Future, to learn how the National Trust of England Wales and Northern Ireland is harnessing data to enhance it’s conservation work in combatting climate change.
Keith Jones, National Specialist – Climate Change Advisor at the National Trust – gave a fascinating overview of the National Trust’s “game changing” hazard map.
As well as an update on the development and use of this map, the webinar provided an opportunity for INTO members to share their challenges, approaches and ambitions in understanding climate change risk and taking positive action.
On 28 January we held a webinar on ‘Building Resilience Through the Pandemic’. We have blogged about the discussion, including tips, ideas and inspiration from our speakers and delegates.Learn more
