In December 2015 UNESCO joined the Summer Solstice Festivities in the Pyrenees to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity; a fact that promoted the creation of the present chair and that made this festival one of the main lines of action of the same.
In this sense, it wants to work to safeguard the tradition of the Falles, Haros and Brandons, fostering historical and ethnographic research, as well as developing educational projects and activities in the field of cultural dissemination or promotion.
One of the tasks that is currently being developed is a Safeguarding Model for Falles, Haros and Brandons, which will soon be evaluated and subjected to a pilot test.
Likewise, pedagogical materials of a manageable nature are being designed and will be offered to schools and primary school teachers so they can work on one of the samples of intangible cultural heritage of the Pyrenees. In this way they will be able to grant them the value that is deserved.
