Dr Hanna Schreiber has co-organized with the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage the seminar titled ‘Building bridges between the 1972 and 2003 Conventions: Challenges for the Future’, as a side event of the 41.

It was held on 10 July 2017, at 07:00-09:00 pm, in Krakow at the International Cultural Centre (MCK). The aim of this meeting was to debate the differences and similarities between the two UNESCO Conventions, both in the normative and practical context of protection. The participants had an opportunity to discuss the challenges faced by UNESCO and states parties to both conventions as well as groups, communities and individuals perceiving their tangible and intangible heritage as one, vital part of identity and a point of reference for socio-cultural practices.
