Scotland's Community Heritage Conversation #8
October 13, 2021 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM at Zoom
We are delighted to announce Scotland’s Community Heritage Conversation #8, a half-day event focusing on Heritage and Climate Change. We are already aware that our historic environment is facing a number of climate change related challenges and this session will focus on activities already underway to address local community heritage issues affected by this.
While only a coordinated global efforts can help address the overall threat of climate change, it is also important to consider how local increases in resilience at threatened sites may limit these pressures and we will try to identify issues, adaptations and mitigation against climate change impacts on heritage assets.
Our full event programme and details of our speakers will follow soon.
Scotland’s Community Heritage Conversations is a new series of digital events to bring together volunteers, community groups and heritage professionals, providing them with a stage to share experiences, inspire and support one another with ideas and plans, and to celebrate the places that matter to us all.
It represents a re-imagining of Scotland’s Community Heritage Conference, which since 2012 has developed into a lively forum bringing together many different voices from the heritage world. This series began in November 2020 and will run throughout 2021.
Regular attendees of the Community Heritage Conference will find many of the familiar features (and familiar faces) that have made it such a success – short talks showcasing the wonderful achievements of community heritage ventures around the country, lively discussions and, of course, our rapid-fire One Minute Mayhem, a 60-second soapbox open to all. But those of you who are new to these events will be especially welcome; you will bring new thoughts to the discussions and, we hope, will leave with you minds buzzing with fresh ideas and new insights.
The Conversations will be hosted on Zoom and will be free to attend. We know that some of you have found it difficult to engage with virtual platforms, but please be assured that we will be on hand to help you get the most out of the day.
If, you would like to contribute a presenation or take part in the one-minute mayhem email Audrey Wilson.
