Climate.Culture.Peace Conference Report

The Climate.Culture.Peace initiative and its knowledge portal focuses on the lives, livelihoods and cultures of communities already experiencing the impacts of the climate crisis. Its conference component, held virtually from 24-28 January 2022, aimed to encourage an intergenerational exchange of ideas, lived experiences and perspectives to identify the various links between culture, heritage, climate, conflict, disaster risk reduction, peace and sustainable development. 

This report summarizes the proceedings and findings of the conference and analyzes understandings growing out of the conversations held. It underscores the urgency of promoting shifts in the ways we perceive culture, heritage and climate change and take action.
