The meeting was organized within the framework of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage and the priority on ‘Safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in formal and non-formal education’. It included field office colleagues from both the Education and Culture Sectors as well as consultants who have been working on concrete country and/or sub-regional level initiatives related to integrating intangible cultural heritage in education.

The main objectives of the meeting were to:

  • Take stock of progress made over the biennium on implementing the new priority on ‘Safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in formal and non-formal education’;
  • Share lessons learned and promising practices thus far; and
  • Discuss and define areas of possible continued and future collaboration, in particular for the 40 C/5 workplans.
