Preserving the Memories of the World

Asia-Pacific members of the National Memory of the World (MoW) gathered at the Bayview Park Hotel last March 1–3 for a workshop on the promotion and advocacy of documentary heritage preservation and access.

The Southeast Asia Pacific Audio Visual Archive Association and the Philippine UNESCO National Commission worked together with the Philippine Information Agency to host the said event, which included participants from Cambodia, Fiji, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, the Philippines, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.

The three-day workshop was centered on the strategies in order to promote the awareness of the general public, the government, and other societal sectors on the need to safeguard the world’s fast-disappearing documentary heritage through the MoW Programme of the UNESCO.
