Living Heritage in the Pacific

If you look through the School stories you will see that a number have been completed for the New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO Pacific Islands’ Living Heritage project. Along with schools in New Zealand stories have been made in Niue, Samoa, and the Cook Islands. All schools were supported throughout the researching of their stories by way of email, phone, and in-school assistance.

“UNESCO recognises that living or intangible heritage provides people with a sense of identity and continuity. Helping young people to learn from their past is a key way to help prepare them for the future.”

New registrations for Living Heritage

We're always looking for new and different stories for the site. Please get in contact if you would like to discuss your ideas or go to Participate on the Living Heritage website for information. It would be great to showcase your story.

Copyright and Privacy Release form

When your Living Heritage story is finished you need to fill in, sign, and send us the Living Heritage Copyright and privacy release form which tells us that all permissions needed have been acquired and are being held at the school. We cannot publish your site until we have this assurance. Please don’t send us the other permissions that you have acquired. Store them at your schools.

Are you are working on a story?

It has been great to meet many of you in your schools over the year. Just remember support is only an email away. We love working with you and are always happy to help.

Best wishes

The Living Heritage team.
