About Blue Shield Australia

Blue Shield is an international organisation, working to protect the world’s cultural heritage threatened by armed conflict and natural disasters.  Blue Shield Australia (BSA) is one of the national committees of the international Blue Shield.

In 2023 Blue Shield Australia will continue to link the community to useful resources in times of natural disasters and focus on the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction, promoting disaster planning and awareness amongst archives, libraries, museums, galleries, heritage places, historical societies, local history groups and other cultural heritage organisations during the month of October. 

BSA encourages our members and friends to acknowledge International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction on 13 October as a useful time to get ready for the next Australian natural disaster season.  #DRRday  https://iddrr.undrr.org/

BSA also encourages Australian GLAM institutions and Heritage Places and Historical Societies to review their disaster preparedness plans and resources.
