The ICH NGO Forum is a platform for communication, networking, exchange and cooperation by and for non-governmental organizations accredited to provide advisory services to the Intergovernmental Committee in the framework of the 2003 UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. More information on the ICH NGO Forum and its activities can be found on their homepage: http://www.ichngoforum.org

ICH NGO Forum Activities

Since 2012, the ICH NGO forum organizes activities on the eve and in the margins of the annual sessions of the Intergovernmental Committee of the 2003 Convention, including thematic symposiums, exhibitions, welcome sessions for newly accredited organisations, networking events, working sessions, the Forum’s annual plenary, and much more! Those are unique opportunities for NGOs to discuss the Forum’s internal and organisational issues, network and exchange information, promote projects and initiatives, meet States Parties and the general public, and raise awareness about the safeguarding of living heritage.
