How is intangible cultural heritage – or ‘living heritage’ - related to sustainable development? How is it relevant for addressing today’s development challenges in areas such as health, education, gender, natural disasters and conflict? If you are interested in finding out the answers, UNESCO’s innovative MOOC on Living heritage and sustainable development helps to understand the connections between the two.
