Dear all

*Local Content BPF: Call for contributions on preserving and sharing
local culture, history and content at risk as a result of political
shifts and upheaval *

The BPF <https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/lexicon/8#BPF> on
Local Content is exploring how the Internet can be used to preserve
local language and cultural heritage, particularly in current contexts
*where cultural and linguistic diversity, artefacts and histories are at
risk as a result of political and social shifts and upheaval*. The BPF
is putting out a call for contributions to help understand and expose
challenges, and gather examples and best practices of how digital
technologies and the Internet can be used to *promote, preserve and
share local culture and content*. The BPF would also like to identify
best practices of how to manage and promote the digitisation of existing
analogue content (printed and electronic media, cinema, music, visual
arts etc.) and services.

Please help us by sharing your experience, expertise, concerns,
questions and examples of challenges and responses to those challenges.


There are only 6 questions and we would really appreciate your input.

Thank you

Carlos Afonso
