In Sweden the event it is called "Kulturarvsdagen" (Cultural Heritage Day) and has always take place on the second Sunday of September. This year the event will fall on Sunday the 11th of September. Cultural environments, cultural landscapes and culturally historic places of interest will be shown all over the country – and the history around these will be told. Many of the programmes are familiy-oriented.

With Heritage Day and this year's theme about movements we want to highlight the important role that communities, associations and other groups or persons at all times have been in utilizing and developing their own cultural heritage and cultural environments. This year we celebrate Heritage Day on September 11 but the event starts with Little Heritage Day on 9-10 September with special acitivites for children.
