UNESCO: Stop the Pillage & Destruction of Underwater Cultural Heritage Sites

Citation:  We would like to thank UNESCO for sharing this video on youtube.

This video focuses on the principles, rules and mechanisms on the Protection and Conservation of Underwater Cultural Heritage Sites.  This is a good tool to help Stakeholders, Community, Environmentalist Groups, Volunteers and Advocates on Environment and Sustainable Development under which the Protection and Conservation of Underwater Cultural Heritage is included.

Conservation and Protection of Heritage sites and places is one of the major thrusts of Earthniversity.  Although this video was originally published in 2010, the principles, rules and mechanisms on how to protect and conserve the underwater cultural heritage sites and places remain the same.  Get some ideas from this video and apply it now to your local experience.  It is never too late to be involved.

Underwater Cultural Heritage is a common heritage of mankind. Let us help UNESCO in this endeavor.


Do you have this site in your province or island?  In Negros Occidental there are few sites of sunken ships that carried loads of goods and may tell a story about our past.   For example in Maricalum Bay at Hinoba-an and in Sipalay.  There are identified dive sites of sunken ships that face the threats of Pillage and Destruction.  Help preserve and conserve them now.

Let us promote UNDERWATER CULTURAL HERITAGE MUSEUM the way Egypt and China do today.  Underwater archaeological trails are already existing in the United States, Italy, Canada, Israel, Australia and the Caribbean.  Let us learn from these best practices.

Happy Mother’s Day To All Mothers In The World

In the United States, we celebrate Mother’s Day every second Sunday of May. This is the result of a Proclamation signed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1914. Mother’s Day celebration became a reality through the efforts of Anna Jarvis who wished a day be set to honor the mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds as well as the influence of mothers in our society.
This is now a global celebration. In northern hemisphere Mother’s Day is celebrated in April-May; in Argentina in October and in Australia in May. (Wikipedia)
So, let us celebrate Mother’s Day and let us not forget the greatest mother of all, our Mother Earth.  Through this website, Earthniversity, together with all our friends and followers will continue with this advocacy of conserving and protecting the resources of Mother Earth.
Again, Happy Mother’s Day to every Mother in the world.

Four (4) major Pillars that can be a good talking points when thinking about improving our Environment.

Four (4) major Pillars that can be a good talking points when thinking about improving our Environment.

(Reference: Department of Environment Australia)

These categories also known as the 4 Pillars of Clean Environment can also be used by any LGUs or Local Government Units or Advocacy Groups in dealing with Environment Programs and Projects in any given location. These 4 Major Pillars also cover the 8 Areas of Concerns specifically enumerated lately. These four are the L. A. W. – Clean Land, Clean Air, Clean Water and National Heritage.

Each Category is discussed with accompanying programs or projects implemented by the Government which an LGU may replicate. It’s like knowing the Best Practices of other countries that we can apply to our local needs in Western Visayas, the Philippines or South East Asian countries. Australia has been a leading country in Environment Protection, Preservation and Sustainability. If you have any points to be discussed, please feel free to inform us for Coffee Table Discussion Minute.
