The Future of our pasts: Engaging cultural heritage in climate action

ICOMOS, the International Council on Monuments and Sites, has released a report, tilted "The Future of our pasts: Engaging cultural heritage in climate action," to build bridges between the subjects of heritage and climate action. The impacts of climate change are already damaging infrastructure, ecosystem and social systems--including cultural heritage--that provide essential benefits and quality of life to communities. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) together with documents such as the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction present the concept of development that views sustainability in more humanistic and ecological terms. In this context, SDGs and Paris Agreement recognize that cultural heritage can guide choices that promote human action in ways that support resilience and sustainability and build extension climate-resilient development pathway. 

Cultural heritage is both impacted by climate change and is a source fo resilience for communities.This report aims to feed the new interdisciplinary #ClimateHeritage movement. Thus, this hopes aims to stimulate attention of policy-makers, scholars and scientists to existing research gaps and promote opportunities for collaboration.
