French bread, the Belgian carnival tradition and Cuban rum will soon become intangible heritage? UNESCO Considers New Recognitions | Abroad

It is the first time after the Corona pandemic that the organization is holding physical meetings again after two years of online meetings. Decisions will be announced on UNESCO’s Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon.

I applied for baguettes, folk rai chants from Algeria, fair parties in France and Belgium, chai culture from Azerbaijan and Turkey, tea culture from China and Slivovitz, plum liquor from Serbia or light Cuban rum.

To avoid controversy, UNESCO respects tradition and knowledge above all. For example, the organization will not recognize that a baguette belongs to the Intangible World Heritage, but that the “craft and culture of the baguette” is part of it.

Since 2003, the Convention for the Preservation of Intangible Heritage has pledged to preserve the traditions and know-how of artisanal products and customs. Recognition of intangible heritage is a tool of cultural diplomacy, and it rewards cultural practices passed down from generation to generation, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, ceremonial events, or knowledge and practices related to nature and the universe.
