Just Transitions, Heritage Education for Climate Adaptation - ICOMOS Universities Panel

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


How can we adapt and transition heritage conservation education to address the growing impacts of climate change and the need for more diverse voices to contribute in setting priorities for adaptation?

The roles of heritage conservation in sustainable development and climate mitigation are increasingly recognized in teaching and in research that bridges these areas. Climate impacts and the need for adaptation are however already challenging the established focus areas of heritage conservation education. Further, decolonization and anti-racism compel us to question what heritage we conserve and for whom.

Learn about key concepts, methods and resources that can help transform your work as heritage educators in transitions towards changing times. Join us to hear from experts discuss what you need to know about Climate impacts and heritage vulnerability, Urban and building resilience and adaptation, Materials resource reuse and equity, Climate justice and Indigenous knowledge and governance, and other key topics changing what and how we should teach heritage and conservation
