12 Asia-Pacific countries meet in Manila for Memory of the World advocacy workshop

Manila (23 February) -- National MoW (Memory of the World) committee members from 10 Asia-Pacific countries gather in Manila for a workshop on the promotion and advocacy of documentary heritage preservation and access to be held at the Bayview Park Hotel on March 1-3, 2010.

The South East Asia Pacific Audio Visual Archive Association (SEAPAVAA) and the Philippine UNESCO National Commission in cooperation with the Philippine Information Agency will host participants from Cambodia, Fiji, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Philippines, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.

The 3-day workshop will focus on communication strategies to raise awareness of the general public, the governments and other sectors of society on the urgent need to safeguard the world?s fast disappearing documentary heritage through the Memory of the World Programme of UNESCO. Impetus for this movement was propelled by the dismal state of preservation and access to important documents which are endangered by natural calamities, war and social upheavals, lack of archiving resources, destruction, and illegal trading.

The Memory of the World (MoW) is a UNESCO programme that is parallel to the renowned UNESCO World Heritage site.

For further information on the Memory of the World Programme, visit the following sites: www.unesco.org/webworld/en/mow and www.mowphilippines.org. (PIA) [top]
