In 2012, at the meeting of the Intergovernmental Committee of the UNESCO 2003 Convention in Baku, Azerbaijan, the NGO Forum decided to establish an online journal with the title #HeritageAlive.
The journal sought to share NGOs experiences regarding safeguarding practices, both good and bad, within the area of Intangible Cultural Heritage. The concept was to share knowledge from fieldwork in communities and with practitioners, between the UNESCO accredited NGOs and experts, in order to learn from each other. An editorial board was formed, with members from all over the world, and Eivind Falk was elected as the Editor in Chief. The online journal has published articles on a variety of different themes concerned Intangible cultural heritage and safeguarding, such as articles on traditional crafts, festivals and naming practices.
Whilst the interest in the journal remained relatively steady, interest peaked after a call for papers was made in relation to Traditional Medicine. As a result of the overwhelming response, we decided to publish the an edition of #Heritage Alive, a book, dedicated to the theme of Traditional medicine.
Members of the #Heritage Alive editorial board is: Emily Drani, Antoine Gauthier, Michael Peterson, V. Jayarajan, Albert van der Zeijden, Ki Leonce, Gabriele Desiderio, Ananya Bhattacharya, Okello Quinto, Eivind Falk (Editor in Chief).
