Intangible Cultural Heritage Debate

Today I spoke in support of the Scottish Government’s motion calling on the UK Government to ratify the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. Community traditions and practices have had a significant impact on our society for hundreds of years, and it is right to recognise the way they continue to shape our national identity. Scotland’s intangible culture deserves the international recognition that other cultures have secured, and anything less sells Scotland short. Watch my speech below, where I touch on two seasonal Celtic traditions we still celebrate today.
