The "Nomads" World Cultural Festival was organized in the Nalaikh District of Mongolia between 18 and 20 of August 2023. The festival has been organized by the Government of Mongolia on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the UNESCO 2003 Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH), aiming to acclaim the nomad’s contribution to the culture of humanity, developing cultural cooperation among countries with nomadic heritage, enhancing the intercultural dialogue, and strengthening peace and unity while promoting and disseminating the richness of nomadic heritage. As part of the festival program, ICH bearers from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Russia, Hungary, Turkey and all provinces of Mongolia demonstrated showcases of the diverse ICH expressions through captivating performances. Representatives from international organizations such as UNESCO, IICAS, CRIHAP, ICHCAP, IRCI and IISNC had contributed to the elaboration of the “Nomadic Living Heritage Safeguarding Declaration” adopted during Consultative Meeting organized within framework of the festival. The document, among other important recommendations, urges to create and develop comprehensive research and international cooperation network that encompasses professional organizations, scholars and bearers. In this regard, Silk Roads Living Heritage Network, established with support of ICHCAP and IICAS in 2021, could be considered as a good example of international cooperation in the field of ICH.
