Darkhan-Uul province in Mongolia ushered in “Capacity Building Workshop: on the Role of Media for Implementation of the UNESCO 2003 Convection for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage” from Sept 11 to 15, 2017. It was the first capacity building workshop conducted by the International Training Centre for Intangible Cultural Heritage in the Asia-Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO (CRIHAP) in Mongolia and targeted at media practitioners.

Hosted by CRIHAP, the Council for Cultural Heritage Communication and Networking (CCHCN) and the Confederation of Mongolian Journalists, the workshop was organized by the Center of Cultural Heritage of Mongolia. The Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Sports of Mongolia as well as the Mongolian National Commission for UNESCO also offered great support to the workshop.

"Lack of attention by journalists engaged in safeguarding intangible cultural heritage has resulted in many precious tangible or intangible cultural heritages in Mongolia being neglected," said Navaanjantsan Bold, director of the cultural and art policy department of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Sports, at the opening session. “The workshop can not only raise public awareness of safeguarding ICH, but also promote training cooperation in Northeast Asia.”

Badam-Ochir Galaarid, president of the Confederation of Mongolian Journalists, said, “The workshop has included media representatives from national and regional TV, papers and networks in 21 provinces.” He encouraged trainees to grasp the rare opportunity to learn more about the 2003 Convention, to make the workshop the best place for Mongolian journalists to practice cultural training.
