The European Students’ Association for Cultural Heritage (ESACH) was founded on occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. Our initiative has become the first interdisciplinary and cross-generational network in the field of culture & heritage at European universities connecting students and young researchers! Interchanging our approaches in the fields of anthropology, cultural or heritage studies, art history, tourism management, conservation science, law etc. we form a unique network eager to contribute with new and innovative ideas! We understand that heritage as decisive element of our common European culture needs our emotions and that it’s safeguarding is not an end in itself.
