The problems confronting intangible cultural heritage

Protection ofIntangible Cultural Heritage

Expressed within the traditional performing arts, craftsmanship, festivals, rituals, and other aspects of cultural heritage conveyed by communities are the history and aspirations of the people who have lived in these communities.

With the wave of globalisation threatening to sweep many of these traditions away, ensuring the continued transmission of each and every one poses difficult challenges.

The adoption of sustainable methods to protect cultural diversity as the property of all mankind is, we believe, essential for creating a truly prosperous world for the next generation.
