The program includes:
- The Four-day Young Professionals Workshop at CCR in Venaria Reale, Italy, from 24 to 27 September 2024. The workshop is designed to provide participants with a foundational understanding of universal accessibility tools for cultural sites through interactive activities, site visits to the main cultural organisations involved in accessibility projects in Turin, and hands-on experiences with case studies. The workshop will conclude with the development of an International Thesaurus of Cultural Heritage with Universal Accessibility. This process will begin by addressing the complex terminology related to conservation. Learning how to effectively communicate conservation interventions in an accessible way will enable participants to broaden their impact across various sectors of the cultural heritage field. It will also equip them with new skills to address issues of cultural and cognitive inclusiveness.

- The Young Professionals Forum will take place on 27 September 2024, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. CET, both in-person at CCR in Venaria Reale, and online on Zoom platform, open to all. Partner organisations, prominent international, and Italian cultural institutions such as libraries, archives, archaeological sites, and museums will frame the theme from a policy perspective, describe the state of the art, and showcase concrete applications of universal accessibility principles. Following this, workshop participants will present the outcomes of the activities conducted on the International Thesaurus of Cultural Heritage with Universal Accessibility.

- Expert Meetings: participants attending the Workshop and/or the Forum can schedule interviews with senior professionals, including national and international experts who are participating in the Forum. They can present their perspectives on the topics and seek advice. These meetings will take place in person on September 27 at the conclusion of the Forum and online, starting from September 29, 2024.
