Objectives:
Faciliter la sauvegarde des racines identitaires, des connaissances et des savoirs traditionnels autour d´une gastronomie millénaire appuyée sur une riche biodiversité dont la continuité historique peut être mise en péril par la mondialisation, la dégradation écologique et les transformations sociales portant atteinte à ces modèles culturels et agricoles.
Le Conservatoire suit aussi de près les expressions novatrices respectueuses du tronc culinaire commun qui assurent la continuité d´une gastronomie à forte identité. A cet effet, il stimule la recherche académique et travaille avec les structures d´enseignement dans la formulation des programmes pédagogiques recouvrant les disciplines liées aux systèmes alimentaires et aux cuisines traditionnelles.
Activities:
Identification des communautés, groupes et praticiens des métiers liés aux cultures alimentaires et gastronomiques autochtones traditionnelles. Organisation des Rencontres et Séminaires des spécialistes. Recherche académique et enseignement. Assistance technique aux Administrations. Projets pilotes. Promotion et diffusion des informations relatives au Patrimoine Gastronomique traditionnel, y compris site web en construction.
Cooperation:
Identification et rencontres des cuisinières indigènes, des producteurs agricoles autochtones, des artisans traditionnels liés aux arts de la table, etc. Notre travail et collaboration avec la communauté est bien documenté avec le projet de récuperation de la cuisine indigène de Michoacán depuis 2004. Ce projet se développe en association avec les femmes et a pour but de préserver les traditions culinaires dans toute la région.
Les actions principales de ce projet, au-delà des importantes manifestations gastronomiques où elles transmettent leur savoir à de nombreuses professionnelles de la cuisine provenant de tout le pays et de l'étranger, consistent en l'organisation d'ateliers de formation dans le domaine de la manipulation hygienique des aliments et d'autres connaissances pour la gestion de leurs petites entreprises d'alimentation. Ces
activités se réalisent grâce à l'initiative des femmes cuisinières de l'Etat de Michoacán.

Main countries where active:

Guatemala, Mexico

Objectives:
Our objectives are:
To promote the safeguarding of the cultural heritage, mainly intangible heritage, in terms of language, cultural practices and cultural knowledge, and the museums which express de cultural diversity of México.
To work with communities to promote their development, empower their social cohesion, and their capabilities to establish a dialogue in a context of cultural diversity. Work is carried out with local (municipio) cultural practitioners and stakeholders.
To valorize intangible cultural heritage through registering, disseminating its expressions, and working with people working in the local arts and cultural rituals, and festivities and their relation to the environment. Also including Mexican migrants in valorizing, funding and promoting such local intangible heritage.

Activities:
The Association has been recently formalized but has been working for the past sixyears in three connected areas:
1. we have partnered with local people to register their rituals, including the Day of the Dead ritual and many festivities, as well as forming local committees to safeguard their intangible heritage.
2. through activities in the villages, including schools, we have held exhibits and meeting to help them develop local and migrant networks to fund activities and sustain traditional forms of their cultural celebrations.
3. we have also worked for several years with legislators in several states in Mexico, helping to develop laws on culture that incorporate the principles of the 2003 Convention for Safeguarding the Intangible Cultural Heritage and the 2005 Convention for Diversity, and we have worked very much with the difution and promotion of it´s principles.
4. we are working at present in setting up criteria and methodology to document and classify intangible cultural expressions as well as organizational procedures to help sustain and revitalize such expressions.

Cooperation:
As an example, for the last four years we have worked in a region which has kept much of its indigenous and local heritage. Several young people from the villages were trained to be photographers in digital photos and their photos were exhibited in the villages and given to the persons who were photographed. Activities with them are continuing in order to create an archive of materials which they keep and which can show the whole range of rituals, including the Day of the Dead, festivals, including carnivals, social practices such as barter in the markets, and their views on how deforestion and diminished water supplies are affecting their ritual and festive life. Some 25 meetings have been organized with students and researchers to develop new methods to register and understand intangible cultural expressions and the challenges they face in a rapidly changing economic and social context. Mexican migrants have also been contacted to encourage their involvement with safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage in their home towns. Many meetings have also been held with state legislators to encourage that laws related to the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage be passed and appropriate cultural policies at local level be established.

We have formal relations with the International Elder Council, and with universities in several countries. And we have develop a Cultural and Tourism advisory branch, for the benefit and promotion of festivities and other non ritual expresions that due to the lack of experience will mostly fail or leave the organizers hopeless for the next event.
