Mechanism for Sharing Information to Encourage Multinational Files
Considering that intangible cultural heritage is often shared by communities on the territories of more than one State, and that multinational inscriptions of such shared heritage on the Lists constitute an important mechanism for promoting international cooperation, the Committee has decided (7.COM 14) to establish an on-line resource through which States Parties can announce their intentions to nominate elements and other States Parties may learn of opportunities for cooperation in elaborating multinational nominations.
The form below allow a State Party to announce such an intention. The Secretariat will acknowledge receipt of the information to the submitting body, with copies to the Permanent Delegation and National Commission concerned. One month after receipt, the information will be made public on the website of the Convention, in French and English, on a web page dedicated to information-sharing.
