The Climate Heritage Network Global Launch was a two-day program (October 24-25) devoted to urgently mobilizing the cultural heritage sector for climate action across the globe. The program served as a key catalyst for accelerating the ambition of culture and heritage actors to help the communities they work in to deliver on ambitions of the Paris Agreement.
Thanks to Historic Environment Scotland, Climate Heritage livestreamed the symposium portion of event through YouTube. Remote participants will be able to submit questions, take part in the interactive sessions and vote on various matters using Slido – enter the code #CHN.

Heading to Edinburgh today for #ClimateHeritageLaunch. Such a great opportunity to gather policy makers, academics, businesses and NGOs from around the World to discuss how the Heritage & Culture Sector can respond to, and play a part in mitigating, the impacts of #ClimateChange pic.twitter.com/qlkNoMn2qT

On the train to Edinburgh for #ClimateHeritageLaunch A mum of teenager was apologising for a break in Scotland when her pals were off to longhaul destinations. The daughter was adamant she had the best mum, that flying would have made her feel sick. https://t.co/ZoIcjOPou0

Glad #ClimateHeritageLaunch will look at cultural tourism. Tourism can build empathy for frontline communities & help fund resilience in the global south. But the growing carbon footprint & enviro degradation are unsustainable. What do museums monuments, sites & attractions do? https://t.co/2UTB0Yt1QK

Heritage professionals have a “moral duty” to join forces on the issue, says Andrew Potts, a co-ordinator of the @ClimateHeritage Network, which launches in Edinburgh tomorrow. #ClimateHeritageLaunchhttps://t.co/FdqsBbDY3Y

Next year city of Bonn will be holding a year-long celebration of Beethoven’s Pastoral- itself a celebration of connections of humans and nature. It’s already playing in my head- @ICLEI_advocacy #climateheritage #ClimateHeritageLaunch pic.twitter.com/Hc65UtaZha

“With climate change, the idea of growth-based sustainable tourism has become an oxymoron” – @cecilie_sc, kicking off the panel on “Cultural Heritage Tourism (and it’s impacts) in the era of climate change” at #ClimateHeritageLaunch. pic.twitter.com/E70e6lLzyL

To move heritage from niche to mainstream, we must speak the language of those who will mainstream it – this includes finance, major funds. We must speak at and to the tables that are not in our room- @ShipraSuri #climateheritage #ClimateHeritageLaunch

"The silo problem percolates to every level. #SDGs, #COP25, #NewUrbanAgenda, etc. That is why an interdisciplinary network like #ClimateHeritage is critical." @ShipraSuri of @UNHABITAT reminds at the #ClimateHeritageLaunch #culturalheritage pic.twitter.com/ZxcCMA4mxy

How do we create an accessible, effective platform to mobilize arts culture & heritage for climate action? Who’s missing from our table? How do we best contribute to climate policy & science?

The Climate Heritage Network was first conceived at the 2018 Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. It is a voluntary, mutual support network of local and city, state/provincial and regional, indigenous and tribal, and national arts, culture and heritage governmental and quasi-governmental boards, offices, ministries and site management agencies as well as NGOs, universities, businesses and other organizations committed to aiding their communities in tackling climate change and achieving the ambitions of the Paris Agreement.
The success of a network is hinged on the willingness of people to help.
