Current campaigns

Our current work to advocate for key issues in conservation

From promoting the values of conservation to society to researching the labour market, our campaigns aim to make a positive difference for the profession. 

Icon investigates and analyses the cultural heritage conservation sector to target our campaigns. We listen to our members and collaborate with partners across the heritage sector to deliver new research and advocacy projects with an impact. Through this area of work, we aim to provide an evidence base for policies and practical guidance and to foster greater understanding of conservation.
