Safeguarding ICH in formal and non-formal education: call for proposals

The UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Section is looking for an individual specialist to develop content for a clearinghouse on safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in formal and non-formal education, in the context of its programme on ‘Safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in formal and non-formal education’.
Proposals should reach UNESCO by 23 October 2018.

‘Safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in formal and non-formal education’ was adopted as a new funding priority for the Secretariat at the twelfth session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in December 2017. This new programme will directly contribute to several goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, especially SDG 4.

As part of this new programme, UNESCO Headquarters will establish a clearinghouse on safeguarding intangible cultural heritage in formal and non-formal education. The clearinghouse will be an online tool to consolidate knowledge developed through in-country initiatives and policy analysis, and then ensure that information is shared widely within and across countries. This sharing can help establish a collective knowledge of lessons learned and good practices that can help refine and inform future initiatives.
