UNESCO is organizing this expert meeting under its programme ‘Safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in formal and non-formal education’ which recognizes that intangible cultural heritage and education intersect and can be mutually beneficial and supportive. The programme was adopted as a funding priority by the Intergovernmental Committee for Safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage in 20171 and contributes to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The online expert meeting is generously hosted by the International Information and Networking Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO (ICHCAP) and sponsored by the Cultural Heritage Administration of the Republic of Korea. It has two main, inter-related objectives: to support periodic reporting to the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage by deepening understanding of the education-related indicators of the Overall results framework for the Convention (indicators 4, 5 6 and 12); and to demonstrate more clearly the linkages this has with countries’ reporting on Sustainable Development Goal 4.
