UNESCO – ACCREDITATION
The Kronoberg Storytelling Network appointed Accredited Advisor
The Storytelling Network Kronoberg, the non-profit association responsible for The Land of Legends, was appointed Accredited Advisor to the Convention in 2014. The association is the only one with this distinction in Sweden. As of June 2020, there were 157 such consultant organisations worldwide. UNESCO revises the list of advisors every four years and checks whether the requirements are still met, if not, the advisor status is removed. This system of accredited organisations is a way of linking international work closely with the practising practitioners of intangible cultural heritage, and gives us practitioners a good opportunity to influence and advise the world’s leading cultural organisations.
