At this meeting specialists and community members shared and discussed concrete practical experiences and insights into how educational efforts can be deployed to strengthen the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage.

The meeting focused on two areas: K-12 (basic and secondary) and non-formal education for the continued or renewed transmission of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) in communities, and educational awareness-raising about ICH among young people.

The meeting intended to make contributions to the implementation of the 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage and placed particular emphasis on education, awareness-raising and capacity-building as safeguarding measures.

Finally, the participants formulated a set of recommendations on strategies and priorities for the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage through education.
