The Ministry of Culture and Youth has announced inscription of three intangible cultural heritage elements on UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity for the year 2022. Commenting on the three intangible heritage inclusions, H.E. Noura Al Kaabi, Minister of Culture and Youth and Chair of the National Commission for Education, Culture and Science, said: "I am very proud of these inscriptions as they showcase our genuine Emirati heritage passed down from centuries and also illustrate the elements of our shared Arab heritage that we share with countries across the region. The government of the UAE is focused on safeguarding heritage and preserving it for the present and future generations for them to stay connected with their roots and value their legacy." "I would like to thank Dubai Culture and the Department of Culture and Tourism - Abu Dhabi who have led the initiatives on Al Talli and Alheda'a and date palm, respectively. This inclusion would not have been possible without the wide participation of individuals, groups, and communities, including local governments, local communities, NGOs, research institutes, and others. "The Ministry of Culture, along with the local heritage bodies, will continue to support cooperation between public corporations and NGOs when implementing the safeguarding measures for our precious intangible heritage," H.E. added.
