[en] We have noticed important changes in rural communities including other perspectives on the common heritage. This could be linked with rapidly changes of demography, including aging and decline of native population and arrivals of commuters. Another hypothesis is that the Belgian society has lost the sense of local heritage. Factors like the rejection of Catholicism, the increase of mobility, social media, the increase of consumerism, including frequent leisure travels, could contribute to the explanation. Based on interviews with the workers and administrators of the NGO and on an e-survey of rural people, the research describes and suggests explanations of this apparently loss of sense of local heritage.
