We also carry out specific studies on the different safeguarding aspects.

PROMOTION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

PROMOTION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Cultural heritage is increasingly present in the sustainable development strategies, including tourism. This concerns specially ICH as a living, people involving heritage.
IPACIM experts organized the International Conference on Intangible Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Development (Barcelona, 2012), carried out a study on the contribution of ICH to sustainable development at the Montseny Biosphere Reserve and took part at the “Expert Meeting on safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage and sustainable development at the national level” organized by UNESCO (Istanbul, 2014).

INVENTORIES OF INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE

INVENTORIES OF INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE

The identification of intangible cultural heritage by means of inventories is the first essential step for the safeguarding. Members of IPACIM coordinated and carried out the field work for the inventory of ICH at the Montseny, the very first in Catalonia, acknowledged as best practice by UNESCO.
