Online Journal 2014 – Education & Training Working Group

Wednesday 13 August 2014 (Categories: Education and Training in Conservation)

The ICOM-CC Working Group for Education & Training has been conscious that some regions of the world are underrepresented within ICOM-CC and that much working group activity is based in Europe or the North Americas. Out of a total membership of 2,240 only 1.3% are from Africa, 2.3% from Asia and 5% from Latin America (the majority from Brazil). We decided to publish a special e journal in advance of the Triennial Conference in Melbourne in order to reflect current issues and ideas about conservation education and training worldwide in a more representative way. Experiences from Africa, Asia and South America, as well as other parts of the world less represented in ICOM-CC were to be the focus of the journal. The response from colleagues working in these regions has been exceptional and it has been a joyous and inspirational experience to read of all the events, activities and developments that they have been engaged in. The journal will undoubtedly strengthen the network of conservators around the world who are involved in education and training and open the way for exchanges and collaborative projects.

Best wishes,
