■ Preparation of statement and programme for 8.GA The first online discussion session dedicated to 8.GA was held on 1 September via Zoom. Around twenty ICH NGOs took an opportunity to discuss the agenda and documents for 8.GA from the perspective of NGOs, as well as the Forum’s statement for 8.GA. On the basis of the outcomes of the session, the members of the Steering Committee finalized the statement. Since none of the members of the Steering Committee will attend the GA in person, our statement will be presented in a form of a video message, which will be broadcasted on 8 September after the report of the Secretariat on its activities. Besides, the Forum wants to intervene on agenda item 11, related to the reflection on the listing mechanisms of the Convention. The intervention has been finalized, but at the moment it is not yet known if the GA will allow its presentation. Another session of the Forum pertaining to 8.GA will be held via Zoom on 14 September in English and on 15 September in French to discuss the deliberations and decisions of 8.GA. ------------------------------------ Minutes of the SC's monthly virtual meeting are uploaded a month later after the confirmation in the next meeting.
