UNESCO-UNEVOC Virtual Conference: Safeguarding intangible cultural heritage through TVET

29 October to 7 November 2018
English | Français

Technical and vocational education and training (TVET) can play a valuable role in safeguarding intangible cultural heritage (ICH). At the same time, ICH can be an incredibly rich resource for TVET programmes.

Yet, the interface between ICH and TVET is a new area for which neither sufficient guidance nor concrete examples exist so far. Most of the related activities underway in TVET institutions have not been designed to contribute to safeguarding ICH and may not include community participation. More work is needed to understand the full potential of this mutually beneficial relationship.

In this context, the present virtual conference was organized from 29 October to 7 November 2018 on the TVeT Forum to discuss safeguarding ICH through TVET. The objective was to reinforce the understanding of ICH and roles of different stakeholders in designing and delivering TVET programmes, and identify opportunities and challenges to such initiatives.

In total, 302 ICH and TVET stakeholders from 83 countries attended the conference. Discussions were structured around five topics, which will be presented in the following sections of this report.
