With the “best practices” network, the UNESCO Chair in Intangible Heritage and Traditional Know-how: Linking Heritage seeks to store and transform data into information that may prove useful for people working in the field of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) or other related areas. The ultimate goal is to contribute to the promotion of the 2003 UNESCO Convention and to disseminate both the expertise gained and the best practices adopted since its implementation.
In order to register yourself or a project on the database, please use the 
ICH Experts or ICH Projects forms in the above menu. A database is only useful if it is updated. It is up to each user to keep it that way.


Intangible cultural heritage is a living form of heritage which is continuously recreated, and which evolves as we adapt our practices and traditions in response to our environment. Since the 2003 UNESCO Convention is of rather recent date, a great number of questions and challenges tend to arise. The UNESCO Chair ICH Forum offers you a place where you can share your thoughts, knowledge and experiences with other colleagues and find new ways to approach still open questions in your field of work. Register here.
Users are invited to propose new threads to the administrator in order to ensure that the Forum addresses a broad range of issues related to Intangible Cultural Heritage.
