Creating a Culture of Climate Action: City and Regional Arts, Culture and Heritage Offices Mobilizing to Meet the Climate Emergency
27 October @ 14:00 - 16:30 UTC+1
Culture and heritage give voice to equity, creativity, values, memory, spirituality, and tradition across both time and space, themes that are essential for transformative change in cities. And yet, the role of culture in climate action is not well understood.
This gap is evidenced by a practical reality: while the culture and heritage sectors are important institutions in many communities, their expertise is not well mobilized in support of climate action.
Increasingly, however, arts, culture and heritage agencies of cities and regions are flipping this paradigm. This panel will showcase exemplary local climate action by culture authorities from around the world in addressing the climate emergency, from adaptive and resilience-building measures to climate change mitigation efforts.
This event will be presented in Spanish and English and will include two separate facilitated breakout sessions, one in each language.
