About This Project
Various Universities and the Delegation of Palau at UNESCO
In island states around the world, living culture is under threat. Climate change, globalization, increased migration, small and scattered populations, and underdevelopment exacerbate the disappearance of traditional ways of life. We are piloting an online platform in Palau in collaboration with the Delegation of Palau to UNESCO which will allow islanders to collect cultural artifacts into a secure digital database. If this pilot is successful, this platform can be utilized all over the world.
