In November 2015, the Lithuanian National Commission for UNESCO, in close partnership with the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania, the Lithuanian Folk Culture Centre and the Netherlands Embassy in Vilnius, organized a capacity-building seminar on the implementation of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage at the national and international levels. Mr. Rieks Smeets, an expert on ICH, acted as a facilitator and lecturer during the seminar. The seminar focused on the key concepts of the Convention, the roles of different stakeholders, recommendations on establishing national policies, legislation, institutional infrastructure, terminological issues, inventorying methods and examples and systems.
In addition to the Operational Directives, the Lithuanian National Commission for UNESCO is also going to publish the collection of articles on UNESCO’s main action lines. The publication is dedicated to the 25th anniversary of Lithuania’s membership in UNESCO.
The series of publications of the Conventions (1972, 2003, 2005) of the cultural field, the Operational Guidelines and the Operational Directives have all been translated into Lithuanian and will be published and disseminated to all relevant stakeholders and NGOs.
