ICH EMBLEMICH is the abbreviation of "intangible cultural heritage", that is to say, all the practices, expressions or representations that a human community recognizes as part of its heritage, because they provide this human group with a sense of continuity and identity. 2020_67717_PCI_FRANCE_00469 - “Transhumance practices and know-how in France”
HOW DID WE OBTAIN RECOGNITION OF INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE AT NATIONAL LEVEL?
RECOGNIZED IN 2020
Since 2018, CORAM has been committed to carrying out the procedure for registering the practice of transhumance on the UNESCO list of INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE OF HUMANITY, in partnership with actors of the pastoral world of the various massifs and territories where this practice takes place (the Alps and Provence, Corsica, the Jura, the Massif Central and Cévennes, the Pyrenees and the Vosges) and the Ministry of Culture. On Tuesday, June 2, 2020, the Ethnological and Intangible Heritage Committee unanimously issued a favorable opinion on the inclusion of the know-how and practices of transhumance in France in the National Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
HOW CAN THE ICH EMBLEM BE USED?
According to the charter for the use of the emblem defined by the Ministry of Culture, it applies more specifically to the promotion of the following activities for the safeguarding, transmission and promotion of the ICH:
• Training courses
• Transmission workshops
• Cultural events
• Audiovisual productions and printed publications
• Conventions, seminars and conferences

The monitoring emblem committee at national level reinforced this user charter by underlining, through a manifesto, the goals which all these above-mentioned media and communication tools must illustrate in order to give a positive and uniform image in line with the challenges defined in the Safeguarding Plan of the practice.
