Are you a youth from the Caribbean between 20 to 25 years of age who want to play a more active role in the safeguarding of living heritage?

UNESCO, through its Intangible Cultural Heritage Section, invites nationals of Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Sint Maarten, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago, to submit applications to attend the Caribbean Youth Forum on Safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage to be held in Grenada, 20-24 November 2012.

Thanks to the generous contribution of Bulgaria and the Intangible Cultural Heritage Fund, the Caribbean Youth Forum on Intangible Cultural Heritage will be held in Grenada from the 20 to 24 November 2012. It intends to foster recognition of the significant role of young people in safeguarding intangible cultural heritage and respond to the need of strengthening their knowledge and capacities in this area. Organized in the context of UNESCO’s global strategy to strengthen national safeguarding capacities through the effective implementation of the 2003 Convention, it will bring together about 25 participants from youth groups/organizations in the sub-region active in the field of culture. The youth coming from about 16 different Caribbean Small Island and Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) will learn about the core concepts of the Convention and develop substantial understanding of its mechanisms and their role in the safeguarding of the intangible cultural heritage.

The Forum is structured around a number of sessions: introducing the participants, introducing the 2003 Convention, key concepts in the Convention, intangible cultural heritage (ICH) safeguarding and sustainable development, field trip preparation, field trip visit to ICH community 1 and 2, feedback and discussion on field trip visit, the role of youth in ICH safeguarding, team planning and reporting on an action plan for participants’ engagement in ICH safeguarding, conclusion and evaluation of the Forum. At the conclusion of the session on team planning and reporting, participants will draft a brief report on their experience during the Forum to be submitted to the 7th session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.

With the exception of candidates from British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Sint Maarten and Suriname who have until 14 September 2012 to submit their applications to their National Commission/counterparts, all other candidates must submit applications to the National Commission of their country by 22 August 2012.
