Become a Cultural Heritage Embassador!
PLUGGY is Europe’s first social networking platform for cultural heritage, which gives voice to the citizens across Europe, enables them to safeguard and enrich the European cultural heritage landscape. The PLUGGY social platform and the pluggable applications (PLUGGY3D, PLUGGY Pins, PlugSonic Suite and Games Hunter) were built upon the idea of empowering European citizens to be actively involved in cultural heritage activities and act not only as observers, but also as maintainers, creators, major influencing factors and more importantly as ambassadors of their country’s Culture and History.

Our story

Currently, there aren’t technological tools that enable local communities to promote their local traditions, cultures, customs, and history into a wider European or even global network. Existing applications and social platforms offer the potential to build networks, but they do not focus on cultural heritage and thus theirs tools and processes are suboptimal.
PLUGGY focused on this gap and aimed at creating communities of people interested in Cultural Heritage, from simple citizens to cultural institutions, that would have the opportunity to share their own personalised stories of local cultural knowledge and experiences. Following today’s trends and given the millions of users of popular social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram, we thought that the best way to activate people to be involved in such activities was through a new social platform whose main purpose would be heritage dissemination.

We are happy to announce that PLUGGY’s Final Event is approaching and will be held on 20th November 2019 in Athens, Greece!
