The capacity building workshop in Ljubljana, Slovenia is a part of the UNESCO global strategy for strengthening national capacities for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage through the effective implementation of the 2003 Convention and was generously supported by the Regional Centre for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in South-Eastern Europe and Slovene Ethnographic Museum.

The workshop trained ministry officials, community members, researchers and representatives of non-governmental organizations on the 2003 Convention principles, its main mechanisms and key concepts, as well as on the significance of the living heritage as vector of the cultural diversity and sustainable development.
