The Climate Heritage Network Global Launch is a two-day program devoted to urgently mobilizing the cultural heritage sector for climate action across the globe. The program will serve as a key catalyst for accelerating the ambition of arts, culture and heritage actors to help the communities they work in to deliver on ambitions of the Paris Agreement.

Day One will consist of a series of talks from invited speakers exploring how cities, states, regions and nations are addressing the intersection of climate action and cultural heritage, as well as considering the role of heritage in climate action. This will be followed by an evening reception at Edinburgh Castle formally launching the new network. On Day Two, delegates will have the opportunity to see first-hand a range of projects showcasing heritage and climate change relevant projects in and around the City of Edinburgh by signing up to one of a series of parallel field excursions.
