Project ID 570GLO4027

To contribute to the overall reflection on safeguarding living heritage in urban contexts, this project will implement two pilot projects on community-based inventorying, a workshop summarizing the key findings and lessons learnt from the whole project and the project findings will also contribute to a position paper on living heritage and urban planning, developed by UNESCO. The Phase I of the project was implemented as part of the overall project 'Intangible heritage and creativity for sustainable cities'. Following the donor's request, this project is the continuation of Component 1 of the initial project and focuses only on living heritage in urban contexts.
