Young advocates and cultural workers will gather for the first time in the history of heritage-promotion and conservation in the country to celebrate the wonders of the Filipino nation, to affirm their commitments to nation-building, and to be inspired by each other and by the invited established cultural workers, scholars, and vanguards. The delegates are expected to actively voice out their ideas and concerns to the stakeholders of heritage and the cultural agencies of the government, and contribute in the forum’s proceedings.
The 1st National Youth Forum on Heritage Secretariat received 238 applications from all over the country. Ninety-six (96) have reached the National Screening Assembly, and from them 57 regional delegates and 23 sectoral delegates (e.g. agriculture, art conservation, built heritage conservation) were selected.
