Implemented by the Foundation for the Protection of Natural and Cultural Heritage, this ten-month initiative aims to prepare a proposal in view of sharing safeguarding experiences related to the Nomadic Mongolia festival through the Register of Good Safeguarding Practices, in the sense of Article 18 of the Convention. The Nomadic Mongolia festival is a nationwide celebration of intangible cultural heritage, held every three years since 2018; around 1,500 living heritage bearers and practitioners showcase their living heritage and safeguarding experiences in front of more than 16,000 visitors. It reflects Mongolia’s integrated policy and approach towards the safeguarding of elements of intangible cultural heritage, with a focus on transmission and dissemination. The Mongolian government considers that the safeguarding experience related to this festival could serve as a model to be shared at the international level.
