From the 1st to the 4th october, 2009  the regional seminar on Underwater Heritage took place in Zadar, Croatia. The seminar became on the occasion of the new International Centre for Underwater Archaeology, Zadar organized by the Ministry of Education and the Arts of the republic Croatia and promoted by the UNESCO-BRESCE. 45 representatives of states and organisations from the area of UNESCO-BRESCE (Southeast-Europe) took part among other things in the ceremonious opening of the ICUA by the Croatian minister of education and the arts Bozo Biskupic.

The representatives of the DEGUWA reported in a seminar paper with the title Year One after Ratification. The situation in Germany and the input of NGOs. about the engagement of the DEGUWA for the underwater cultural heritage protection for future generations and the state of the realisation of the UNESCO convention in Germany. The contribution caused a lively discussion in the lecture hall. On this occasion the topic was, about the question for which reasons Germany has not yet signed the convention after eight years as a leading land in the European community and as a significant cultural nation. The ratification through the federal republic would give a signal for many other lands to move the convention faster in national law.
