Climate Heritage Network Global Launch

ClimateHeritageNetworkMobilising1The Climate Heritage Network Global Launch is a two-day program (24-25 October 2019) devoted to urgently mobilizing the cultural heritage sector for climate action across the globe. The programme 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 voluntary, mutual support network of local and city, state/provincial and regional, indigenous and tribal, and national arts, culture and heritage governmental and quasi-governmental boards, offices, ministries and site management agencies as well as NGOs, universities, businesses and other organisations committed to aiding their jurisdictions in tackling climate change and achieving the ambitions of the Paris Agreement. Interested parties may join the CHN by signing or endorsing the Climate Heritage Network Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). ICOMOS is staffing the new network.
