“THE OCEAN DECADE CHALLENGES AND THE MARITIME CULTURAL HERITAGE OF ASIA-PACIFIC”
The conference theme mirrors worldwide efforts to discuss current environmental challenges, in the hope that a look into the past may open a window for the future. To do this, the APConf 5 will have as its main theme the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030), a framework to deliver solutions orientated to support a well-functioning ocean. We share previous voices pointing to underwater cultural heritage as an essential asset to reach the 7 Ocean Decade Outcomes for the Ocean We Want: a clean ocean, a healthy and resilient ocean, a productive ocean, a predicted ocean, a safe ocean, an accessible ocean and an inspiring and engaging ocean.
The Asia-Pacific Conference on Underwater Cultural Heritage (APConf) aims to address management and protection strategies of underwater cultural heritage in Asia and the countries of the Indian and Pacific Oceans in the 21st Century, facilitate regional cooperation through the development of academic, non-governmental organisations (NGO) and governmental networks in the Asia-Pacific region, and provide a forum for discussion of new research, as well as technical and ethical issues related to underwater cultural heritage, maritime and underwater archaeology. A wide range of people involved with underwater cultural heritage are encouraged to participate, including those from universities, government agencies, museums, NGOs, IGOs, the private sector and the community.
