> Hi everyone,
> I'm very happy to announce that De Bond Heemschut is going to support
> the organisation of Wiki Loves Monuments 2011 in the Netherlands!
> From their website: "De Bond Heemschut is a private organization which
> has worked continuously for almost 100 years (since 1911) to preserve
> the Dutch cultural heritage. 'Heemschut' derives from the words
> 'schutten' meaning to 'enclose' (i.e. protect) and 'heem', 'one's
> premises'. As a heritage organization our work involves protecting
> historically interesting structures and sites - everything from an
> endangered tea house to carved up land, for example alongside the
> motorways.
> We carry out this work with the drive and dedication of volunteers. Each
> of the Dutch provinces and the city of Amsterdam has its own independent
> Heemschut committee." (from, more
> information over there)
> They already supported Wiki Loves Monuments 2010 with some prices and
> with someone in our jury. This year Heemschut is going to support us a
> lot more with "offline" PR, something we didn't really get to last year.
> I look forward working with them!
> Maybe something for the other countries to look into: Does your country
> have a volunteer based heritage organization like Heemschut? It would be
> a natural partner to work with.
