Dr. Isabel Rivera-Collazo presented at the Living Heritage Symposium on September 4-6 in San Antonio, Texas. As the Principal Investigator of the Descendants United for Nature, Adaptation, and Sustainability (DUNAS) Project in Puerto Rico, Dr. Rivera-Collazo talked about the dune restoration underway as well as her vast experience working with climate change and cultural heritage.

The Living Heritage Symposium is a gathering of cultural heritage experts—from policy-makers to activists—working together to develop best practices for the treatment of cultural heritage, including intangible heritage. It is a solutions-driven event that uses the World Café format so participants may engage with each other to draft action steps for managing living heritage and urban development. This year’s symposium integrated the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals in the discussions.

Dr. Rivera-Collazo spoke in the “Climate and Heritage Session” session, presenting “From Knowledge to Action: Heritage Working for Climate Change Adaptation”.
