Maritime Heritage

Maritime heritage is at the very heart of CDPI's strategy and we have adopted a modern and progressive approach to addressing it.

Maritime heritage is well understood as including historic vessels, historic sites, museums and stories/images of our maritime past and these are important. However we are concerned primarily with the modern dimension of maritime heritage and how it is something that is constantly developing and being created. The maritime heritage of tomorrow is being shaped today and we aim to promote a conscious process of that.

An important aspect of this is addressing the maritime environment and the ecological impact of industrial, transport and other maritime activity. Equally important are the communities, economic and social impacts of the maritime sector. Through our work we look at issues of contemporary and emergent culture, activity, innovation, new technology, new industry and sustainable development.

Our projects are developed to take these issues into account and to promote a broader understanding of them.
