In 2017, the craft of the miller was the Kingdom of the Netherlands’ first inscription on the Representative List of the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage. However, this craft is not unique to the Netherlands.
That is why we aim to develop an international network of millers and mill societies. Therefore we bring together wind- and watermill parties from all over the world to share knowledge and skills.

Are you a miller or interested in safeguarding the craft of the miller, sign up!
