Climate change is increasing the number of disasters and their devastating impacts on lives, properties, livelihoods and cultural heritage. The likelihood of increased weather extremes such as heavy downpours, heat waves, and strong hurricanes and cyclones therefore gives great concern that the number or scale of weather-related disasters will also increase putting heritage at greater risk than ever before. Moreover, greater variability in temperature and precipitation due to climate change is also posing challenges for the conservation of historic built fabric. This necessitates transformative change through bold decisions for transition to a carbon neutral and resilient world that can sustain heritage for future generations, and at the same time considering radical changes in conservation and management practices to adapt to changing environmental context. The webinar aims at discussing specific actions that we must take at national and site levels to enable such a change.

Textiles are over 5 000 years old and common to all civilizations, past and present. A rich and diverse living heritage that comprises a multitude of materials, techniques, and shapes. Besides being a fascinating testimony of humankind’s ingenuity, textiles provide exceptional opportunities for the heritage sector to nurture innovation, promote respect for diversity, and public engagement. Textile production, trading, and conservation are inter-related topics that bring together multiple influences and areas of knowledge, providing a valuable medium for social cohesion and promotion of sustainable development. They encompass important overlapping aspects of tangible and intangible heritage, nature and culture, traditional knowledge and state-of-the-art research. Time is ripe for rethinking how we approach textile conservation. Simply safeguarding collections can no longer be our final goal. Conservation has to grow into an effective means to promote and sustain the realization of the full potential of our textile heritage.
