IE represents Europe in a new publication celebrating global examples of interpretation.
Interpreters of the World: heads up! A new compilation of texts about interpretation from around the globe has just been published by WHIPIC, the International Centre for the Interpretation and Presentation for World Heritage Sites, under the auspices of UNESCO.

The inaugural periodical celebrates the first year of WHIPIC and showcases inspirational stories from around the world. In particular, the combined content looks at inclusive interpretation and the presentation of world heritage in a changing world.

Interpret Europe was asked to represent the continent of Europe by providing an example. We have been working with UNESCO offering training to World Heritage Site staff, following the principles of our Certified Interpretive Planner (CIP) course, so we were very happy to be asked to contribute to this new publication.
