Heritage, Equity and the Climate Crisis
Join Scottish Civic Trust for an online lecture series on the intersection of heritage, equity and the climate crisis.
Although marginalised communities bear the brunt of the impacts of climate change, they are often underfunded, under-resourced and excluded from discussions about sustainability. As the impacts of climate change increase and threaten our buildings and places, it is more important than ever that we support everyone to get involved with building a more sustainable future.
Lectures will be released 1-12 November on Scottish Civic Trust Facebook, Twitter and YouTube (@scotcivictrust). Booking not required.
