Free Online UNESCO Course on Living Heritage and Sustainable Development

UNESCO has launched a free online course on Living Heritage and Sustainable Development, which is open to anyone with an interest in these areas.


The course is composed of six modules, each consisting of related chapters under a common theme, including an overview of living heritage in the spirit of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage and the relationship between living heritage and topics such as gender, education, health, income generation, agriculture, climate change and peacebuilding.


The course is self-paced, which means that all course components are available and can be completed at any time until 31 August 2022. The course can be accessed for free via the edX website. The video chapters are also available at the SDG Academy library.
