This Place Matters

Celebrate places you love with #ThisPlaceMatters.

Everyone has places that are important to them. Places they care about. Places that matter. This Place Matters is a national campaign that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities.

As you spread the word, make sure to use the #ThisPlaceMatters hashtag. People around the world are sharing photos of the places they hold dear. But this campaign isn’t just about photography. It’s about telling the stories of the places we can’t live without. Through This Place Matters, we hope to encourage and inspire an ongoing dialogue about the importance of place and preservation in all of our lives.

At the National Trust, we want to help you shine a spotlight on all the special places that are important to you. And to get you started, we're sharing exciting tips and tools so you can take your This Place Matters campaign to the next level. Follow the steps below to begin!
