On 28th Nov 2019 a short seminar dealing with the intangible dimensions on tangible heritages was hosted in Finland. Dr Hee Sook Lee-Niinioja (President, ICICH) opened the seminar. She discussed the ICICH-committee, WH-criteria, and she shared interesting case studies. The President of ICOMOS Finland, arch. Kirsti Kovanen had studied all ICOMOS charters and documents, keeping in mind “intangible heritage”. She suggested that Culture-Nature Journey might be a good area for the dialogue between tangible and intangible heritage.
After the opening-speeches we had some philosophical and theoretical lectures dealing with “Material, time and atmosphere of heritage”. The discussion about the possibilities to protect immaterial values of heritage by the Heritage legislation was interesting. Many actual cases are just now not at the tables of civil servants.
Four round tables hosted further discussions under the titles:
- The original use of heritage, new uses
- The skillfulness and capability
- The knowledge and research work
- Good will, participating, political will

This volume examines the implications and consequences of the idea of ‘intangible heritage’ to current international academic and policy debates about the meaning and nature of cultural heritage and the management processes developed to protect it. It provides an accessible account of the different ways in which intangible cultural heritage has been defined and managed in both national and international contexts, and aims to facilitate international debate about the meaning, nature and value of not only intangible cultural heritage, but heritage more generally.Intangible Heritage fills a significant gap in the heritage literature available and represents a significant cross section of ideas and practices associated with intangible cultural heritage. The authors brought together for this volume represent some of the key academics and practitioners working in the area, and discuss research and practices from a range of countries, including: Zimbabwe, Morocco, South Africa, Japan, Australia, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, USA, Brazil and Indonesia, and bring together a range of areas of expertise which include anthropology, law, heritage studies, archaeology, museum studies, folklore, architecture, Indigenous studies and history.
