Journal of Maritime Archaeology: "The Ocean Decade Heritage Network: Integrating Cultural Heritage Within the UN Decade of Ocean Science 2021–2030"

Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO

UN Agency

This article is an important step in raising awareness in the archaeological community of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021–2030. The Decade will likely be a distributed programme and archaeology requires an approach that is also distributed in order to engage. Rather than give the lead on archaeological engagement with the Decade to any one of the institutions and networks that already exist, we believe that we must work between existing structures as well as through them.

The Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021–2030 is a UN initiative that promotes a common framework for supporting stakeholders in studying and assessing the health of the world’s oceans. The initiative also presents a vital opportunity to improve the integration of archaeology within the marine sciences.
