For the first time in its history the Latvian Youth Song and Dance Celebration is included into the list of anniversaries with which UNESCO is associated in 2010-2011, thus marking the 50th anniversary of the youth celebrations and their significance for preserving and inheriting the tradition of song and dance celebrations.
The Song and Dance Celebrations are a unique integral part of the Latvian national identity and Latvian cultural traditions. These Celebrations traditionally consist of the Latvian Nationwide Song and Dance Celebrations and Latvian Youth Song and Dance Celebrations. The tradition and symbolism of these Celebrations in Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania are recognized internationally and inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
At this occasion Ms. Mmantsetsa Marope, representing the UNESCO Education Sector, will be present at the 10th Latvian Youth Song and Dance Celebration in Riga.
