Morocco: safeguarding of living heritage, a shared interest among various actors
- Cherry festival in Sefrou
Organised by the UNESCO Rabat Office, this workshop was attended not only by officials from the Ministry of Culture and representatives of the local communities concerned, but also representatives from the Ministry of Craftsmanship and local authorities.
The integration of living heritage in multi-sector policies as well as good understanding of the key concepts of the Convention on Intangible Heritage among the various stakeholders are essential for its efficient implementation. These issues were addressed during this training workshop led by Mr Ahmed Skounti (Morocco) and Mr Mohamed Ould Mohamed Lemine Beijeu (Mauritania ), both UNESCO facilitators in the field of intangible heritage.
