At the same time, we at the National Trust hear calls for change in historic preservation practice and policy.To ensure that the movement remains a resilient and relevant force for positive change, the National Impact Agenda aims to articulate our shared values and describe actions we can take-individually and collectively-to deepen the impacts of the work of historic preservation.
