The International Research Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region (IRCI) is holding an online public symposium entitled “ICH contribution to better education and sustainable communities” on 22 December as part of its project “Research on ICH’s Contribution to SDGs: Education and Community Development”. All interested parties are invited to attend.
The International Research Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region (IRCI) has been implementing projects relating to SDGs since FY 2018. From FY 2020, IRCI started the project “Research on ICH’s Contribution to SDGs: Education and Community Development,” in the framework of the “Platform for Future Co-Creation of UNESCO activities” of Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), Japan. The project focuses on SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities), in cooperation with NGOs in Bangladesh, Indonesia and Kyrgyz. The project investigates the relationships among ICH, education and communities. The purpose of this symposium is to share the outcomes of the project with the wider public and to provide an opportunity for Japanese youth to interact with international researchers and experts to learn about ICH safeguarding and SDGs.
