The community aims to raise awareness on the illicit trade of cultural material through a variety of different strategies. Since our community is still very young, we will refer for the moment to already existing material for raising awareness from different institutions (such as the UNESCO, Interpol or traffickingculture). With time, we will also add our own material.
