The DPC invites all data creators, archivists, curators, community members and digipres folk from around the world to celebrate digital preservation by participating in a whole day dedicated to all of the benefits and opportunities enabled by the hard work of our dynamic and collaborative community.

With the theme ‘Digital Preservation: A Concerted Effort’, World Digital Preservation Day 2023 is a great opportunity to connect the digital preservation community and celebrate the positive impact digital preservation has had in another year where digital information and infrastructure have been so instrumental in supporting all parts of our global society. Taking digital preservation to the next level takes time and actively working together with colleagues, partner institutions, open-source developers, friends and other community members. Or, in the words of this year’s WDPD theme: "No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it!” (quote by H.E. Luccock)

Organized by the DPC and supported by digital preservation networks around the globe, World Digital Preservation Day is open to participation across all sectors, from anyone interested in securing a sustainable future for our digital assets.
