As a result of innovative didactic experiences and previous research, the authors selected and highlighted some of the most important bases to consider that citizenship education and heritage education share common principles and objectives to enhance aspects such as participation, commitment, or historical awareness. However, there are still challenges that must be faced collaboratively between public administrations, social groups, the private sector, and the general public. This chapter starts with a review about research on heritage education and research in citizenship education and continues with the description of some innovative experiences based on research into heritage and citizenship education; concluding that the connections between citizenship education and heritage education allows the definition of new lines of research and innovation framed as relevant socio-environmental issues, such as controversial social issues, the approach to freedoms, social justice, respect and sociocultural empathy, democratic values, and construction of identities, among others.
