Scotland's Historic Environment: The Key to a Climate Resilient Future
Scotland’s historic environment is both at risk from the impacts of climate change, but also part of the solution to the climate crisis.
At this event we will explore the work underway across our sector to understand the risks and impacts of climate change. We’ll also hear about the features of our historic environment that can make it resilient to the risks and impacts of climate change. We will then explore the role the historic environment has in creating and shaping climate resilient places and spaces across Scotland.
We'll hear from representaives of Adaptation Scotland, Dynamic Coast, Historic Envrionment Scotland, SCAPE, ICON and Edinburgh Climate Change Institute - with more to be announced.
Session One: Understanding climate hazards: Showcasing work underway in our sector to better understand climate hazards and risk and their impacts on the historic environment.
Session Two: Climate resilience and the historic environment: Demonstrating the inherent resilience of the historic environment – be that the features of it that are resilient to the impacts of climate change, or the features of it that help build and shape resilience of a place /a community.
