#ygkChallenge: Learn More About Kingston’s Heritage

Heritage Conservation, Kingston, OntarioThe #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:

Learn More About Kingston’s Heritage. The City of Kingston is offering an online discussion with heritage planners to mark Heritage Week, February 16-22.  Heritage Week is a province-wide celebration aimed at creating awareness of heritage resources and conservation.  The City of Kingston’s online heritage conversation is titled What’s New (and New to You) in Kingston Heritage Conservation.  City heritage planners will be online to help you learn about ygk’s heritage conservation efforts.  A live chat will take place on Wednesday, February 18th from 12pm-1pm at www.cityofkingston.ca/GetInvolved.  This conversation gives Kingstonians an opportunity to ask questions that will be responded to by heritage planners.  Some recent City initiatives include: Heritage Conservation District Plan updates and the Master List project. You can also find out more about the ongoing heritage grant and tax relief program and the Heritage Resource Centre.  This week we challenge you to get involved in the conversation and to learn more about Kingston’s Heritage and the efforts being made towards its conservation.  If you’re feeling really keen, keep the challenge going for another week by taking in an information session with renowned historian Brian Osborne, titled International, National, Local Heritage: Quo Vadis? in The Wilson Room at the central branch of the Kingston Public Library on Tuesday, February 24th at 7pm.

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.
