International Co-operation

Dfor the years 2003-2007 The National Trust of Slovakia was a seat of Secretariat of the European Network of National Heritage Organisations. NTS played a role of co-ordinator of activities and projects of this network. One of the main activities of ENNHO that time was an organisation of European Exchange Programmes. NTS organised EEP in Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Lithuania and Latvia, Ireland and Northern Ireland. In 2007 ENNHO became a part of worldwide community of heritage organisations called International National Trusts organisation - INTO.

The NTS was also involved (Mrs. Michaela Kubíková - a director of NTS is a member of the INTO Board and Executive Committee) in the preparation and establishement of the international organisation of all national trusts from around the world - International National Trust Organisation.
The principle mission of INTO is to promote the conservation and enhancement of cultural and natural heritage of all nations for the benefit of the people of the world. In furtherance of this mission, INTO shall have the following objectives:
