#S54 Collaboration and Development of new Methods for the Preservation of Underwater Cultural Heritage (CODEUCH)

Priority Area Culture - Developing and promoting the common culture and cultural identity

The protection and preservation of underwater cultural heritage, such as shipwrecks, is coming under pressure from both large construction projects yet in the Baltic Sea and recreational divers. Yet, the principles and legislation for the preservation and protection of underwater cultural heritage differ greatly from country to country. The main goal of the project is to unify the practice of the states when dealing with both, members of the diving community and large-scale development projects.
