Date: 20. May 2019 - 24. May 2019

Great Britain currently is the world leading country in field of the cultural heritage preservation. The public services in this field have been delegated to different NGO-s.   Some of the organisations have been established in 19 century and have more than 100 years experience in the field therefore serving excellent examples in management of the cultural heritage. During the study visit to Great Britain the partners shall also be introduced with high quality public services of preservation of historical houses through the centuries.

The main idea is to get experience in public services delivery on both issues: practical and theoretical fields. The specialists of Latvia and Lithuania will gain experience from more qualified specialists in Great Britain as well as they also will see the examples of good practices which they will try to adapt in Latvian and Lithuanian areas. Result of the visit will be strengthened capacity of two institutions working in field of the preservation of cultural heritage in Lithuania and Latvia.
