Activating Tangible Cultural Heritage for Climate Action

Principal Investigator for the Climate Science Alliance’s DUNAS Collaboration, Dr. Isabel Rivera-Collazo, presented on the DUNAS project during a recent webinar series entitled ‘Heritage and Climate Change’ for the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS).



Across the globe, communities are transforming to address the causes and impacts of climate change. How can heritage help? What does the practice of cultural heritage look like when it's part of the solution?


Principal Investigator for the Climate Science Alliance’s DUNAS Collaboration, Dr. Isabel Rivera-Collazo, explored this topic during a recent webinar series entitled ‘Heritage and Climate Change’ for the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS).



This program, moderated by Andrew Potts and Stacy Vallis of the ICOMOS Climate Change and Heritage Working Group, explored these questions through the work of practitioners on the frontlines of climate action, in Puerto Rico, Thailand, Fiji, and beyond to demonstrate how cultural heritage can drive and enable climate action.

This project was made possible through a 2018 Climate Adaptation Fund grant from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) entitled, “Puerto Rico se Levanta: Learning from extreme events to build and sustain a resilient future". Support to establish the Climate Adaptation Fund was provided by a grant to the WCS from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
