Threatened by cultural modernization, many emotions and manifestations of living heritage or intangible cultural heritage (ICH) are under crisis. The non-formal education initiative of living heritage conservation focused on preserving and passing the skills and knowledge, practices, expression, and instruments of local people on to future generations effectively. By using the literature review as an analysis method, this paper identified the best non-formal education initiative and the significance of living heritage conservation education for the community. In conclusion, quality education of living heritage conservation, not only fulfills people's needs but also helps unite and empower both local people and the community to sustain the living heritage efficiently.
