From 16 to 19 July 2019, the National Workshop for the secondary school teachers entitled "Integration of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) in Formal and Non-formal Education" will be held in Tashkent.
It is organized by the UNESCO Office in Tashkent in cooperation with the Ministry of Public Education of the Republic of Uzbekistan. The seminar is conducted within the framework of the UNESCO regular programme "Safeguarding ICH in Uzbekistan though strengthening capacities in inventorying and integrating ICH in education".

The aim of the workshop is to improve the teachers’ qualification in the field of introduction of ICH methodology in education. The workshop will use materials developed in the framework of the UNESCO project "Promotion of intangible cultural heritage among educators to strengthen education for sustainable development in the Asia-Pacific region", implemented in 2013-2015 in close cooperation with the Ministry of Public Education of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

Uzbekistan ratified the 2003 UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2008. The country's rich intangible cultural heritage, transmitted from generation to generation, occupies a special place in the culture of Uzbekistan. These are practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills – as well as the instruments, objects, artefacts and cultural spaces associated herewith – that communities, groups and, in some cases, individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage. This heritage is an integral part of the life and culture of the peoples in Uzbekistan, providing a sense of identity and continuity and promoting creativity and social well-being.
Education and intangible cultural heritage are closely linked to each other. The transmission of ICH-associated knowledge and skills through formal and non-formal education plays one of the central roles in safeguarding of ICH.
