Strengthening the Convention’s facilitators network in the Asia and the Pacific Region
Hangzhou, the People’s Republic of China – The UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Section is organizing a training of trainers workshop (TOT) for the facilitators network of the 2003 Convention in the Asia and the Pacific region in Hangzhou, from 2 to 6 July 2018, collaborating closely with the International Training Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region (CRIHAP).
The training workshop intends to strengthen and expand the Asia and the Pacific chapter of the facilitators’ network to ensure that its members are well prepared and sufficiently numerous to respond to the growing demand in the region for capacity building in the field of intangible cultural heritage. As part of a new round of TOTs that UNESCO is organizing in the different regions, the workshop is introducing new topics arising from the implementation of the Convention, notably the Overall Results Framework for the Convention and periodic reporting, gender and the links between safeguarding intangible cultural heritage and sustainable development.
While the workshop is primarily addressing current and future network members, colleagues from UNESCO field offices and from CRIHAP are also among the thirty-nine workshop participants. The workshop is co-hosted generously by CRIHAP and the municipality of Hangzhou city.
