Climate.Culture.Peace Book of Abstracts

Climate.Culture.Peace is a knowledge-building initiative, aimed at exploring the interconnections between culture, climate change, peace and disaster resilience. It includes a 5-day virtual conference and a knowledge portal with a focus on heritage places and institutions, which are threatened by climate-related disasters and/or conflicts driven by environmental stresses.

This project is conceived and designed by First Aid and Resilience for Cultural Heritage in Times of Crisis (FAR), a flagship programme of ICCROM, which is aimed at protecting cultural heritage from conflicts and disasters. This initiative is generously supported by the British Council’s Cultural Protection Fund (CPF) in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).
