Event description

Description

Cultural heritage, in all of its forms, plays an important role in defining society. It gives individuals and communities both a sense of place and of belonging as well as identity. But much of our cultural heritage is under threat from a number of hazards such as conflict, mal-development and neglect. In the longer term, accelerated climate change will become an ever-increasing threat to cultural heritage.

This talk, taking place in the 13th century Black Gate at Newcastle Castle, will explore the impact of climate change on cultural heritage and ask how we can best protect it.

Dr Geoff O'Brien is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Geography in the Faculty of Engineering and Environment. He combines engineering practice with social science work on policy together with a strong sense of business culture.
