What strategies have been deployed to demonstrate the continued relevance of Intangible Cultural Heritage to younger generations, in the context of changing rural and urban communities? Besides policies and pedagogical practices, which are the focus of most governmental efforts to engage youth, how else can communities tackle the fundamental intergenerational issues which challenge the sustainability of Intangible Cultural Heritage? How have youth themselves taken on the mantle of safeguarding or promoting Intangible Cultural Heritage for their generation? How can we leverage the talent, energy and enthusiasm of youths, to demonstrate the relevance of such traditions to their lives, and encourage them to become more active advocates and adopters of Intangible Cultural Heritage?
 
We hope that this online symposium will serve as a meaningful opportunity for like-minded individuals and groups to engage in dialogue about the roles that youths can play in safeguarding Intangible Cultural Heritage, and rediscover the value of Intangible Cultural Heritage despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
