On June 9 2022, UNESCO organized, in partnership with the European Union, a one-day conference that gathered representatives of international organizations, government officials, and experts from academia, the art market, the financial sector, judiciary and law enforcement, to share experiences and discuss concrete measures to strengthen the fight against illicit trafficking of cultural property
Building upon the outcomes of the EU-funded activities, this conference was structured around three thematic panels, addressing different dimensions of interregional cooperation, ways to strengthen interdisciplinary cooperation as well as educational and awareness-raising efforts.
PITCHER project has been presented by Corinne Szteinsznaider, coordinator of the Michael Culture Association in a round table on “Intergenerational dialogue and learning: reaching a wider public”, alongside initiatives managed by the Turkish ministry of culture, the European Students' Association for Cultural Heritage, ICCROM and the Flagship Programme 3 of UNESCO's Global Priority Africa.
The speakers enhanced the key role of Awareness and Education and in particular toward the youth. It has been the opportunity for the project to present to the audience the objectives, the approach and the methodology as well as the first steps of the project and in particular the first feedback on the identification of teachers’ and educators' needs.
