Heritage is Ours – Citizens Participating in Decision Making showcases inspiring practices and cases related to heritage participation. In these examples citizens have succeeded in having a lasting influence on decision-making processes that affect cultural heritage.

The book can be seen as a dialogue between European heritage activists and specialists. The articles address questions such as: How can citizens influence decision making in a smart way? When is the right time to listen to people and how should this be done? Who should get involved? How should the identities and assets connected with a particular place be identified? Can conflicts involving heritage be avoided?
