2019 Asia-Pacific Youth ICH Storytelling Contest

  • - UNESCO prioritized youth as the main driver of innovation and change for sustainable development and emphasized youth participation. Especially, since intangible cultural heritage relies on community transmission , the role and participation of young people leading future generations is very important.
  • - As UNESCO Category 2 Centre for safeguarding intangible cultural heritage, ICHCAP( International Information and Networking Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO) plans to provide young practitioners with an opportunity to develop their own safeguarding activities and raise awareness of intangible heritage among young people in general.
  • - (TIP) ICHCAP organized the 2016 ICH Multimedia Contest for the general public to promote visibility and raise awareness of ICH. In 2016 and 2017, ICHCAP operated a youth ICH video documentation project, called the Youth Meets ICH, for youth teams selected from contests and expert recommendations.
