Organised by UNESCO through its Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe in cooperation with the Italian Ministry of Culture, the capacity-building course on the safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Italy will equip participants with the skills, knowledge and competencies needed to effectively safeguard living heritage, contributing to the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals.
The aim of the training, which is part of UNESCO’s global capacity-building programme for the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage, is to enhance the knowledge and competencies of participants regarding the safeguarding of living heritage in the country by leveraging good practices, sharing common experiences, and supporting networking. The course is specifically aimed at institutions, communities and organisations involved with the 17 Italian elements inscribed on the UNESCO Lists of Intangible Cultural Heritage and the Register of Good Safeguarding Practices, as well as at practitioners, researchers and experts in the field of living heritage.
The course runs from September 2023 to January 2024 and consists of 15 online meetings, touching upon topics such as the safeguarding and promotion of living heritage and community-based participation, all while reinforcing existing cooperation networks. Intersecting themes such as ethics, formal and informal education, and sustainable development will also be addressed throughout the programme.
