In order to intensify its collaboration with youth in the implementation of the 2003 Convention, UNESCO launches three sub-regional youth forums in South-Eastern Europe, the Caribbean and Central Africa.

The first one is the youth seminar of Sofia, taking place from 24 to 25 September 2012 and organized by the Regional Centre for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage in South-Eastern Europe (a category 2 centre under the auspices of UNESCO) in Sofia, Bulgaria. The participants of the forum are students, researchers and representatives of youth organizations in the region, exploring and debating the role of youth in the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage.
