Wiki Loves Living Heritage/About

In 2023, we celebrate living heritage around the world!

Wiki Loves Living Heritage is a wiki initiative that pays tribute to living heritage on the 20th anniversary of the UNESCO 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Living Heritage embraces practices, knowledge and skills that have been passed on through generations and are still valuable and in use today. It includes for example oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature and the universe or the knowledge and skills related to crafts. Living heritage is not only diverse and colourful, but also an invaluable source of time-tested knowledge about how to live on our planet sustainably and peacefully.

Join documenting and sharing what living heritage matters for you today and your community: what you practice, cherish and safeguard!
