Powering climate action through heritage policies, organisations, research and public programmes
How are cultural heritage institutions, researchers, practitioners, civil society actors and policymakers responding to the climate emergency, and how might we achieve more integrated and radical action? This event will build on a range of European and international projects, policy initiatives and frameworks which aim to inspire radical change for climate action in and with the cultural sector.
Organised by the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPI CH), Climate Heritage Network (CHN), Europa Nostra and Reimagining Museums for Climate Action (RMCA)/ University College London Institute of Archaeology, it includes contributions by these actors as well as the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM), International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), International Council of Museums (ICOM), The Climate Museum NYC, the Italian Ministry of Culture and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education and Culture (DG EAC).
The event will take place in the EU Pavilion at the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26, on the 11th of November at 4 pm GMT. You can register to watch the event online
