Blue Shield International, together with our partners, the Romanian Institute for Heritage of the Romanian Ministry of Culture, are delighted to welcome our National Committees, National Committees in formation, and invited partners to our 2024 General Assembly and Training Course in Bucharest, Romania, as we come together to celebrate the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict on its 70th anniversary.

The Blue Shield has its roots in the 1954 Hague Convention and the last 70 years have seen us go from strength to strength. On this important anniversary, it’s a good opportunity for us to come together as a heritage protection community and reflect. Where have we come from? Where are we going, and most importantly, how can we better protect heritage in crisis for the next 70 years (and beyond!) We are looking forward to seeing you there.

Shielding the Past: 70 years of the Hague Convention

Dates: 9 – 12th September 2024

Location: Bucharest, Romania.
It is our intent to host the conference and some training in hybrid format with livestreaming and virtual participation (10th and 12th). It will not be possible to join the field trip virtually.

Cost: We do not intend to charge for this event. Lunch and light refreshments will be provided as part of the event, as will the conference dinner.

Language: English

Who is invited: This conference and training course is intended for Blue Shield National Committees, National Committees Under Construction, the Founding Four representatives on the international board, and invited guests. We welcome representatives from all the national committees (not just Presidents/Chairs). If you have not received an invitation and believe you should have, please use the contact form to let us know. 

How do I register? The registration link has been emailed to all National Committee Points of Contact and guests. If the link has not been shared with you (or you need us to send it again!), please contact the Blue Shield Secretariat.
