Upcoming virtual conference on intangible cultural heritage in technical and vocational education and training
From 29 October to 7 November, 2018 the Intangible Cultural Heritage Section and UNESCO-UNEVOC will co-host a virtual conference on ‘Integrating the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) in technical and vocational education and training (TVET)’. The conference, which comes under the new priority on ‘Safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in formal and non-formal education’, will explore the links between ICH and TVET.
The conference will be held on the UNESCO-UNEVOC TVeT Forum: an online discussion board where TVET experts from around the world can share information and knowledge about different aspects of TVET. UNESCO-UNEVOC is a specialized institute that contributes to strengthening the capacity of Member States to develop comprehensive and evidence-based policies for TVET.
The aim of the virtual conference is for participants to be able to: understand what ICH is and the roles of the community in designing and delivering TVET programmes on ICH; recognize the links between ICH and TVET and the role of different TVET stakeholders; and identify the opportunities and challenges safeguarding ICH presents to stakeholders.
Participation is open to anyone with an interest in ICH and TVET. You can sign up here to join the virtual conference.
