We live in a technological era that enables us to harness technology in favorable ways for maintaining world sound cultural heritage, especially in terms of its protection for future generations. And it goes without saying that media preservation and archiving require unique skillsets.

We would like to ask and discuss some crucial questions related to power, to IASA’s aims, objectives and possibilities in the terms of designing, promoting and disseminating training in this area. But it’s not just about special education and training in the usual sense; these activities must be conceived in the broadest and widest sense. Great emphasis must be placed on getting support from decision makers. We should start with education and raising awareness of problems. We need advocacy strategies and new leadership skills. We need to seek out innovative ways of cooperating and thinking. We need to reshape our own minds, our abilities and skills. Without the younger generations, we are lost—we need to involve them, inspire their interest, and transfer our know-how.

In several practical cases from the Czech Republic, we will illustrate areas of success and failure.
