15 September 2022, Zoom conference: German Challenges for Climate Science and Heritage - a response to the International Expert Meeting in December 2021 from UNESCO-ICOMOS-IPCC


Goal of the event: The follow-up event to the German Expert-Workshop in support of the UNESCO-ICOMOS-IPCC meeting on Culture, Heritage and Climate Change aims to bring together climate and cultural heritage experts from multiple German research institutions as part of a wider initiative to bridge the two fields of study. The meeting intends to present an overview of the three commissioned White Papers from the International Co-Sponsored Meeting on Culture, Heritage, and Climate Change (ICSM CHC) that took place in December 2021. These papers reviewed the state of cultural heritage and climate knowledge developed to date in terms of knowledge systems, impacts, and solutions. By presenting the results of the December event, it is hoped to identify how these findings can be important for the German-speaking country.
