Mainstreaming Culture and Heritage into Climate Planning

Friday 6 November 2020 - 06/11/20

Online

The cultural dimension is missing from many climate plans.  This webinar will introduce participants to HiCLIP (Heritage in Climate Planning), a new project of the Climate Heritage Network Working Group 4 (WG4) that aims to help mainstream arts, culture and heritage into climate plans at the local, regional and national levels.

Planning is critical to addressing the causes and impacts of climate change. Human–caused Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions have already warmed the globe 1°C over pre–industrial levels.  Adapting to the resulting climate change presents a monumental planning challenge. Mitigating the rate of future climate change also requires a deeply transformative set of plans if humanity is to achieve net zero GHG emissions and reconcile its production and consumption with planetary boundaries.

Cultural heritage offers immense potential to drive climate action and support a just transition towards a low carbon, climate–resilient future. Yet paradoxically this potential is rarely expressed in climate plans, although there are exceptions including in those of Indigenous People’s organisations.

This omission of cultural heritage holds true across climate plan typologies including climate action plans, GHG mitigation strategies, and  even climate adaptation frameworks. It raises the prospect that the communities served by these plans are neither realising the full potential of cultural heritage to support climate action nor doing all that could be done to safeguard their cultural heritage from climate hazards.

HiCLIP uses multiple methodologies to survey adaptation and mitigation plans around the world and to consider the ways culture and heritage are treated (or not treated) in them.  HiCLIP outcomes will include a data base of exemplary provisions excerpted from reviewed plans as well as other tools to support better mainstreaming culture and heritage into planning instruments.

The webinar will begin with an overview by Dr Cathy Daly of the results of a recent questionnaire that addressed the inclusion of cultural heritage in climate plans around the world.  Positive examples of climate plans that do address cultural heritage will be presented. These include ‘The Built and Archaeological Heritage Climate Change Sectoral Adaptation Plan’ of Ireland and the City of San Antonio, Texas’s “SA Climate Ready” plan, presented by Jacqui Donnelly and Dr Jenny Hay respectively.

Olufemi Samson Adetunji will speak on Integrating Culture, Heritage and Climate Change: Perspective from Africa. Andrew Potts and Dr Paloma Guzman will conclude with an overview of the direction of the HiCLIP project, followed by a Q&A session with all speakers.

  • Olufemi Samson Adetunji, PhD Candidate/Casual Tutor, School of Architecture and Built Environment, University of Newcastle; ICOMOS Nigeria

  • Dr Cathy Daly, Lecturer in Conservation in the School of History & Heritage at the University of Lincoln (UK)
