I AM VERY PLEASED TO BE HERE THIS MORNING AT THE CONTINUATION OF THE SUB REGIONAL PROJECT ‘STRENGTHENING THE CAPACITIES OF ARUBA, BONAIRE, CURACAO, SABA, ST. EUSTATIUS, ST. MAARTEN AND SURINAME TO IMPLEMENT THE CONVENTION FOR THE SAFEGUARDING OF THE INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE (ICH)’, WHICH AIMS TO FACILITATE THE SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF UNESCO’S 2003 CONVENTION FOR THE SAFEGUARDING OF THE INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE, AND SPECIFICALLY ITS GLOBAL CAPACITY BUILDING STRATEGY.

YOU ARE ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH THE SAFEGUARDING OF THE INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE IN THE CARIBBEAN AND PARTICULARLY FOR CURACAO AS SOME OF YOU PARTICIPATED IN A SIMILAR MEETING HELD HERE IN 2011 AND THE MEETING HELD IN ARUBA IN 2013 ORGANIZED BY THE UNESCO HAVANA OFFICE AND THE NETHERLANDS.

THIS PROJECT STARTED IN MAY OF 2014 WITH FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION FROM THE NETHERLANDS TO THE INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE FUND AT UNESCO.

A PROJECT DEVELOPED IN LINE WITH THE 2003 CONVENTION’S GLOBAL CAPACITY-BUILDING STRATEGY AS WELL AS THE NEEDS IDENTIFIED BY OUR DUTCH CARIBBEAN ISLANDS IN THE MEETING ORGANIZED IN ARUBA IN APRIL 2013.
INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE IS TRANSMITTED FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION AND IS CONSTANTLY RECREATED BY GROUPS AND COMMUNITIES IN RESPONSE TO THEIR SURROUNDINGS, INTERACTION WITH NATURE AND THEIR HISTORY. ONES INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE PROVIDES YOU WITH A SENSE OF IDENTITY AND CONTINUITY, THUS PROMOTING RESPECT FOR CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND HUMAN CREATIVITY ACCORDING TO THE CONVENTION.
YESTERDAY WAS THE CELEBRATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL MOTHER LANGUAGE DAY. LANGUAGE IS ALSO CONSIDERED PART OF OUR INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE. PAPIAMENTU FOR THE ISLANDS OF ARUBA, BONAIRE AND CURACAO AND ENGLISH FOR THE ISLANDS OF SABA, ST. EUSTATIUS AND ST. MAARTEN.
IT IS THEREFORE VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE ALSO SAFEGUARD OUR LANGUAGES TO PREVENT ITS DISAPPEARANCE.

IT WILL BE UP TO YOU DURING THIS WEEK OF LEARNING TECHNIQUES ON HOW TO INVENTORY THE INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE UNIQUE IN COMPARISON TO OTHER CARIBBEAN COUNTRIES.
WE MUST SAFEGUARD OUR INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE AS IT IS IMPORTANT IN GIVING US A SENSE OF IDENTITY AND BELONGING, LINKING OUR PAST THROUGH THE PRESENT WITH OUR FUTURE.

AT THE END OF THIS JOINT TRAINING YOU, AS AN IMPORTANT STAKEHOLDER IN THIS ACTIVITY, WILL BE EXPECTED TO HAVE ENHANCED CAPACITIES TO SAFEGUARD OUR INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE AND LEARNT ABOUT APPROPRIATE MEASURES TO ASSURE LONG-TERM SAFEGUARDING.

I UNDOUBTEDLY KNOW THAT YOU WILL DO A VERY GOOD JOB AND WISH YOU A FRUITFUL WEEK OF TRAINING AND WISDOM, AND HEREBY DECLARE THIS TRAINING OPEN.
