For our first Queries & Theories webcast, Carl Elefante, FAIA, FAPT will moderate as Andrew Potts, Coordinator of the Climate Heritage Network & Brenda Williams, ASLA, Principal with Quinn Evans, discuss threats to cultural heritage sites as a result of climate change, how climate change solutions can also imperil these cherished sites, and how heritage conservation perspectives can shape & support appropriate climate action measures to protect these sites. From the threat of sea-level rise to the Statue of Liberty to the impact of transmission corridors for wind farms & solar arrays on native lands, our cultural heritage assets are at great risk from climate change and, in some cases, measures aimed at mitigating climate change. How are cultural heritage specialists who focus on long-term, multigenerational preservation, and resilience in a unique position to contribute to effective climate action strategies? What are the benefits of engaging indigenous peoples & local communities in addressing climate change and promoting connections between people & nature? What are the evolving responsibilities of heritage conservation professionals & advocates in confronting climate change?
