Next, facilitators and Chinese experts will guide the trainees to carry out a five-week offline video shooting practice of ICH. The trainees will search for, select and record ICH projects, events and people in their eyes and lives according to the contents of the previous online lectures, to further deepen their understanding of ICH, improve their awareness of ICH safeguarding, and drive the enthusiasm of the whole society to participate in ICH safeguarding.
In recent years, the United Nations has paid close attention to the training and development of youth. UNESCO, especially under the influence of COVID-19, focuses on how to attract young people to understand ICH, enhance their awareness of ICH safeguarding and guide them to participate in it.
