On 10th March, Deputy Secretary-General Anna Puhr gave a lecture for the Archaeological Research Network (AFIN) in Innsbruck.
The non-profit association "Archaeological Research Network Innsbruck (AFIN)" aims to promote awareness and understanding of cultural heritage through archaeological research. They focus on public relations and cultural mediation to disseminate research findings, generate interest in archaeology, and involve society in preserving our shared cultural heritage. Their efforts span the Alpine region, emphasizing collaboration without spatial or temporal limitations. AFIN operates as a network for archaeological research, supporting scientific projects and providing archaeological services.
In the lecture Anna Puhr shared insights into the work of the Blue Shield Movement with examples from BS Austria and Lebanon to present the Blue Shield network and raise awareness of the importance of cultural heritage protection in times of crises and conflict. The lecture was followed by a social dinner and lively exchange on the topic.
