Through cooperation with organizations such as the Historical museum, the National archive, Region Västra Götaland, Higab, University of Gothenburg, genealogist in Gothenburg and about sixty different cultural heritage associations, GHF keep on acting for the same cause since the 1950’s: To increase the common knowledge and to strengthen the community around the local history in Gothenburg.

They want to bring awareness and engagement in preserving the city from a historical, topographic or from an artistic perspective. The interest for the cultural heritage is the force in the engagement for the local history. Here all generations unite.
