Blue Shield Australia members and supporters attended the 2018 Blue Shield Australia Symposium held at the National Library of Australia, Canberra, Australia.
The symposium was held over two days as follows:
- Monday 29 January 2018—Tours, Workshops and Evening Welcome Reception
- Tuesday 30 January 2018—Symposium with invited speakers
The purpose of the symposium was to share expertise, experiences and case studies of the protection of cultural heritage in times of natural disaster, as well as to discuss climate change and the strategies being put in place by the sector to work towards a sustainable future. The Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Pacific Regions are often affected by natural disasters and we look forward to learning from each other to advance the work of the International Committee of the Blue Shield to safeguard cultural assets for future generations.
The Blue Shield Australia would like to thank the following sponsors for their support.
