The Fourth annual meeting of category 2 centres under the auspices of UNESCO active in the field of the intangible cultural heritage will take place on 3 June 2016 in Paris at UNESCO Headquarters. This customary annual meeting will follow up on the three previous ones that were held since 2013. It will start with a brief update from UNESCO on recent developments in the life of the 2003 Convention, including the outcomes of the sixth session of the General Assembly of the States Parties to the Convention. The rest of the day will be dedicated to general discussions on different topics ranging from the new perspectives under the 2003 Convention, to potential fields of cooperation and future synergies amongst the centres as well as between UNESCO and the centres themselves.
