UNESCO is bringing together documentary heritage professionals, academics, policymakers, and technologists, and others to build an international policy agenda for digital preservation of documentary heritage.

Programme Flier for Documentary Heritage at Risk Policy Dialogue

This online policy dialogue among memory institutions and other stakeholders seeks to unpack the cultural, economic, technological and legal aspects around a digital preservation of documentary heritage to inform an international policy agenda. 

IFLA will be represented by past president Ingrid Parent, and by Governing Board and Cultural Heritage Programme Advisory Committee member Helen Vincent. We are excited to contribute to this dialogue with UNESCO and colleagues representing memory institutions towards a more comprehensive legal provision for the protection of documentary heritage. 

The policy dialogue will take place on 27 October 2020 via ZOOM and will be split across two sessions:

  •  8am CET: will address questions about cultural identity and sustainability
  •  5pm CET: will focus on technology and legal frameworks
