Sažetak

The paper gives an overview of the centuries-old tradition of voluntary service associations for the protection of natural and cultural heritage of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The founders of the presented associations have invested their free time, energy, as well as their own financial resources to protect their heritage. It is this philanthropic and voluntary aspect of their work that has contributed to the long-term survival of these associations and helped them gain the confidence of people. Therefore, the number of their members has been constantly increasing, and they have been receiving growing financial resources through donations. Volunteers undertake a wide spectrum of activities, ranging from the management of heritage areas to their restoration and maintenance, from monitoring the implementation of plans and laws to the initiation of adoption of new laws or amendments to deficient laws. They organize fundraising, purchase areas which should be protected, organize the management and presentation of heritage, and design educational activities for a variety of visitors. The model that these institutions have applied for many years is something we should seek to apply in other countries, such as Croatia, who are trying to invest in higher quality tourism development. The improvement of cultural tourism and tourism culture is the only safe way to promote a sustainable development of this industry, if we wish to minimise the negative elements it entails.
