2012 ICCN General Assembly & 3rd International Youth Forum


2012 ICCN General Assembly & 3rd International Youth Forum
(Oct. 21 – Oct. 24, 2012, Gangneung City, Korea)

The 4th ICCN General Assembly (former International Round Table of Mayors) and 3rd ICCN International Youth Forum will be held on October 21st to 24th, 2012 in the City of Gangneung, Republic of Korea.

The ICCN GA’s theme of this year is “The current status of the implementation of the UNESCO 2003 Convention at local government level and its contribution for sustainable local development.” During the session, members are going to review how local governments are implementing the convention and reaffirming the importance of local role in the safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. At the same time, it will be a substantial meeting for locals to discover how the implementation of the 2003 Convention means to them and which way will affect the safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage and sustainable local development.

On the other hand, the 3rd ICCN International Youth Forum will discuss the similarities and differences between each others’ intangible cultures in a more peaceful and diverse future based approach. This will help encourage the young people’s understanding of each others’ culture as well as help them to reduce tension between different cultures.
