Cultural Heritage is a Climate Action Issue. Climate Action is a Cultural Heritage Issue” this is the premise of the event organized by the Climate Heritage Network.

 

Culture x Climate 2020 is a virtual global forum for arts, culture and heritage-based climate action, presented from 12 October to 27 November, anchored by Climate Heritage Week 2020 (16-22 November).

It is designed to unite all those interested in the role of arts, culture and heritage in tackling the climate emergency and aims to enhance the capacity of these sectors to help build a climate-neutral and resilient world in the time of COVID-19. It promotes new partnerships between cultural actors and stakeholders across sectors and encourages the culture sector to play its part in driving greater ambition at UN Climate Summit (COP26).

Over a 45-day period, attendees will have access to a variety of virtual formats:

A series of three virtual November Dialogues held as part of the UN November Dialogues. This series showcases the often-overlooked role that arts, culture and heritage play in achieving a climate-neutral and resilient world.

A series of five Climate Heritage Network Regional Forums will spotlight the work in each CHN region of the world to mobilise arts, culture and heritage for climate action. The Regional Climate Heritage Forums are being presented during Climate Heritage Week 2020.

A series of seven virtual Climate Heritage Mobilisation Webinars held in partnership with Historic England’s Climate Friday.

On November 16, the Climate Heritage Network will hold an action-oriented Annual General Assembly, that will bring together Climate Heritage Network Members and Invited Observers, with the aim of organizing, planning and preparing to bring the voice of arts, culture and heritage to the next UN Climate Summit (COP26).
