In 2023, Wiki Loves Living Heritage celebrates the 20th anniversary of the 2003 UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Share your living heritage by participating in the Wiki Loves Living Heritage campaign and join the many heritage communities, Wikimedia volunteers, NGOs and other organizations involved in its preservation around the world.

Living heritage lists have been developed in more than 180 countries around the world. Every year, a number of these elements are also included in UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists. And of course, living heritage is not limited to items entered into lists or inventories, there is much more that creates occasions for celebration.

Find out more about the campaign on the Wiki Loves Living Heritage website, whose launch event is on 17 March 13.00 - 14.30 UTC.

Wiki loves Living Legacy 2023 and is calling for you to join in making the 20th anniversary visible together!
