Climate Heritage Network Launch (2019)


The Climate Heritage Network Global Launch was a two-day program (October 24-25, 2019) 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.
