18 July 2020 all-day

ICOMOS Webinar Series | EPWG+CCHWG Seminar “Heritage and Climate Change”

This webinar will feature speakers who are contributing to the efforts of the ICOMOS Climate Change and Heritage Working Group (CCHWG) and Climate Heritage Network (CHN), and will form part of the ongoing ICOMOS Webinar Series.

Across the globe, communities are transforming to address the causes and impacts of climate change. How can heritage help? What does the practice of cultural heritage look like when it’s part of the solution? This program explores these questions through the work of three colleagues on the frontlines of climate action, in Puerto Rico, Thailand, Fiji, and beyond to demonstrate how cultural heritage can drive and enable climate action.
