Latin America and the Caribbean celebrates 20 years of the 2001 Convention with a strengthened underwater heritage

On November 2, 2021, UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage reached its 20th anniversary. As part of the celebrations in this region of the world, the International Seminar “Panorama on the management and administration of the Underwater Cultural Heritage in Latin America and the Caribbean” takes place, which from today until November 24, 2021 is held in a virtual mode. UNESCO Regional Office for Culture in Latin America and the Caribbean in Havana and UNESCO Office in Quito and Representation for Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela, in collaboration with all UNESCO offices in the region, have organized this meeting with the aim of disseminating the various experiences, reflections and case studies related to the management and administration of this heritage at the level of Latin America and the Caribbean. The course is generously supported by the Maritime Program of the Heritage Agency under the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Numerous have been the actions implemented by UNESCO in the region during these two decades for the protection of underwater cultural heritage, even before the approval of this legal instrument, including more than 70 training, awareness-raising and knowledge promotion activities on this important and fragile heritage both at national, sub-regional and regional level. With the seminar that begins today, one of these activities concludes: UNESCO Regional Virtual Course on the Training Manual for the Foundation Course of UNESCO on the Protection and Management of Underwater Cultural Heritage in Latin America and the Caribbean, which since August 17 brings together nearly 80 students from 24 Member States, 11 of them from the Caribbean, and which had prestigious specialists and international experts, mostly from the Latin American and Caribbean region, in charge of teaching the different subjects. The training included 11 learning modules, lasting one week each, which addressed the contents of different units of the Manual of UNESCO Foundation Course on the Protection and Management of Underwater Cultural Heritage, except for the eleventh, which focused on the collaborative design of archaeological research project proposals.
