Powering climate action through heritage policies, organisations, research and public programmes
The event “Powering climate action through heritage policies, organisations, research and public programmes” organised within the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, will take place on 11 November at 18.00 CET.
How are cultural heritage institutions, researchers, practitioners, civil society actors and policy makers 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.
The event is jointly organised by the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPI CH), Europa Nostra, the Climate Heritage Network (CHN), and Reimagining Museums for Climate Action (RMCA). It will gather contributions by these actors as well as other relevant stakeholders such as the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM), the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), the International Council of Museums (ICOM), the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), the Climate Museum NYC, the Italian Ministry of Culture and the European Commission’s Directorate General for Education and Culture (DG EAC).
