10th International Congress of European Maritime Heritage September 11-19 in Pylos of Greece

 Man, since time immemorial, has relied on his heritage not only for his survival on earth, but also to build a better world for future generations. Tangible and intangible heritage is made of identities, social mores, collective memories, customs, traditions, and traditional professions that have been handed down from generation to generation.
Guided by love of our local traditional maritime heritage and the inherent need to preserve centuries’ old knowledge and traditions, the Panhellenic Association for Preservation of Maritime and Traditional Boatbuilding Heritage “Proteas” in cooperation with the civil non-profit company Hellenic Maritime Heritage “Argos C.N.C.P” are organizing Maritime Heritage Week. The polythematic event will take place in the municipality of Pylos-Nestor, September 11-19.
The current year marks the 200th anniversary of the Greek uprising against Ottoman rule. As the Maritime Week is being organized in such an emblematic location, the European Maritime Heritage organization is holding its triannual Congress during the Maritime Heritage Week in Pylos, Greece for the first time in its history, paying thus a tribute to the Greek nation, its substantial maritime tradition and the contribution of our civilization to Europe.
European Maritime Heritage (EMH) is a non-governmental organization that promotes knowledge and awareness about maritime heritage as well as its preservation throughout European countries. It gathers owners of traditional ships and historic vessels, maritime museums and other stakeholders interested in the identification, restoration and preservation of tangible and intangible maritime heritage, including the ones related to inland waterways.
