  6. 6. Here’s a sample of tasks the 4th edition of the GoUNESCO Internship Program had GoUNESCO Internship Program - Tasks #heritageinteract #heritagetales #capturingculture #deliciousheritage All the GCA and coordinators to meet at any one of the heritage sites in their city, interact with fellow GCAs and visiting tourists. Discuss about the place, its history and relevance. Interview tourists on what attracted them there, how was their exploration and why they think it is important for them to visit such sites. The GCA to try and make the interview as interesting and engaging as possible. This task takes GCAs on a journey to explore these tales and myths. GCAs in each city were grouped into a team – each team chose any heritage site in their city, interacted with people there and unearthed stories associated with the site. GCAs to talk to the artistes or practitioners of intangible culture (oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, knowledge and practices concerning nature), talk to them about the legacy, the importance of the culture in history of civilisation and its current state. GCAs need to include the interview with the artist in an article and their suggestions and ideas on preserving the ICH. Celebrating the festive season, GCAs were to describe traditional food items prepared at their homes for festivals. GCAs to share photos, recipes and even videos and submit the task as an individual or team up with friends or GCAs in their city. In addition to exploring the heritage of food, getting families involved was also an objective of this task. More info: http://www.gounesco.com/gounesco-internship-program
  7. 7. Here is a selection of articles the current set of student interns have written GoUNESCO Internship Program - Articles More info: http://www.gounesco.com/gounesco-internship-program Hungary is an agricultural country and one of its most important products is wine (maybe you have heard about Tokaji Aszú). If you go across the country, you can see vineyards everywhere – on the Great Plain, on the hills and also on the lower parts of the mountains. Thanks for it, many folk customs are connected to grape harvest in autumn. Probably, the Grape Harvest Festival is the most amazing among them. The festival is different in each regions, I would like to introduce you the traditions in my native village. Here, as generally, the Festival is an all day activity, which starts at down, finishes at night and its peak is the dance of the Csősz. But who are the Csősz? Read more: www.gounesco.com/grape-ripens-dance-begins There is one thing I like so much in Paris ; the Metropolitan. Despite the fact that it’s a smelly and dark place, noisy and crowded, the Paris Metro is fascinating, full of interesting details, scenes, happenings, stories and people. With 5 millions users a day dispatched over 300 stations, you can observe every single groups of populations. The stressed ones – late for their work – the lazy ones and sleepy ones – coming back from parties – the families, the lovers, the eccentrics and so on. The subway is trully the best sample to study Parisians behaviours, ways of life and habits ; a city under the city! Read more: www.gounesco.com/one-day-paris-metropolitan-musicians/
