Climate Resilience Heritage Summit

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Heritage organisations from across the UK are coming together today (Wednesday 27 October) for an online summit to explore ways in which they can work together to face the shared challenges that climate change presents to the historic environment.

The Climate Resilience Heritage Summit, hosted by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) and organised in partnership with Cadw, Historic England, English Heritage, The National Trust, The Department for Communities for Northern Ireland and The National Trust for Scotland, aims to build on previous partnership between the organisations and set out how they can continue to collaborate in the future to strengthen the resilience of the historic environment in Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales and help communities adapt to withstand the impacts of climate change already underway – which supports a key goal of the COP26 negotiations.

Climate change is one of the most significant challenges for the management of historic places, with the growing intensity and frequency of climate hazards – such as flooding and coastal erosion – requiring increasing resources to both investigate and respond to these risks.
