In his blog, Guy Tilkin, general manager of the heritage site Alden Biesen in Belgium, says it is clear that learning nowadays is no longer confined to schools and colleges. Learning takes place everywhere. Natural and cultural heritage sites, monuments and museums offer the ideal context for learning and interpretation and offer ideal techniques to make this learning as meaningful as possible. Heritage interpretation can be seen as a structured approach to non-formal education, specialised in communicating significant ideas about a place to the public. Therefore it is high time to focus on the specific qualifications of the professionals in the field of heritage interpretation.

ACTING UP project (http://actingup.eu) addressed the problem of low level of participation of adult learners in lifelong learning. The project aimed to exploit the potential of drama techniques to increase the motivation of adult learners. The methodology fostered the work of trainers and counsellors supporting the adult learners. Experienced training and educational organisations from 5 EU countries implemented the programme in Poland, Scotland-UK, France, Portugal and Italy.
