World Day For Audiovisual Heritage: Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik Advocates To Preserve Traditional Knowledge System

Bhubaneswar: As the globe observes World Day for Audiovisual Heritage (WDAH) today, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik called upon the people to preserve the traditional knowledge systems which are at great risk due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Taking to twitter, Naveen highlighted that as the Covid-19 infection continues to spread across the globe, it poses a great risk to traditional knowledge systems, especially the documentary heritage.

“Its preservation through effective policies is key to securing our knowledge and improving public access to it,” suggested the Chief Minister.

The General Conference of UNESCO approved the commemoration of a World Day for Audiovisual Heritage (WDAH) in 2005 as a mechanism to raise general awareness of the need to preserve and safeguard important audiovisual materials such as such as sound recordings and moving images for future generations, and for urgent measures to be taken to conserve this heritage. It also aims to ensure the audiovisual heritage remains accessible to the public now and to future generations.

The theme of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage this year is “Your Window to the World”.
