The Climate Heritage Network Global Launch is a two-day program (Thursday 24th to Friday 25th October 2019) devoted to urgently mobilizing the cultural heritage sector for climate action in Europe and across the globe. The program will serve 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. The launch builds on the Climate Heritage Mobilization @ Global Climate Action Summit held in San Francisco in 2018.
A key outcome of the program will be the launch of the new Climate Heritage Network, a mutual support network of city, state/provincial, regional, national and tribal historic preservation offices (together with related NGOs, universities and other organizations) committed to aiding their jurisdictions in tackling climate change and achieving the ambitions of the Paris Agreement.
