  • Blue Shield Netherlands participated for the first time in the MayDay initiative by mailing an invitation to heritage institutions in the Netherlands to take action on MayDay and share via #MayDay2019 #ErfgoedAlert! Blue Shield Netherlands also invited members of its national committees to join the MayDay initiative alongside Blue Shield Australia, which has already taken part in the initiative for a few years. The Blue Shield network is committed to “the protection of the world’s cultural property, and is concerned with the protection of cultural and natural heritage, tangible and intangible, in the event of armed conflict, natural- or human-made disaster.”
  • The National Archives of Georgia celebrated MayDay by having 30 employees take the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property’s (ICCROM) Training Course “First Aid During Cultural Heritage Crisis.” The event was organized by the Georgian National Committee of Blue Shield and the National Archives of the Ministry of Justice of Georgia.
