On Sunday 23rd May, a workshop was held on the UNESCO Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage at the Western Australian Maritime Museum, Victoria Quay, Fremantle. The objective of the workshop was to invite interested participants from all walks of life, whether in related fields or not, and provide them with an opportunity to familiarise with the Convention which could also prove useful for later lobbying and support for Australia to ratify the Convention.
The workshop consisted of a panel-audience discussion as well as presentation style format for sessions where articles and rules of the Convention needed to be highlighted and explained.
