G20 Group PhotoThe ICOMOS President, Ms Teresa Patrício attended the meeting of G20 Culture Ministers in Rome on July 29 and 30 July 2021. Her intervention focussed on ensuring that culture and heritage are counted in when tackling climate change – as they are both at risk from its impacts and part of the solution.



“Your leadership in establishing climate action as a priority theme in your ministries and supporting a focus on climate among the culture and heritage operators in your countries will be crucial.”
Teresa Patrício, President of ICOMOS


ICOMOS thanks the Italian Presidency of the G20 for the opportunity to actively participate in the preparatory work for this meeting and the drafting of the Final Declaration that was adopted by the G20 Culture Ministers at its close.
