Planning for coastal and marine heritage in a changing climate

Event Date: 
Thursday, December 16 at 1pm US EST / 10am US PST / 6pm UTC

Presented by: Erin Seekamp of North Carolina State University

Heritage sites represent our inherited traditions, objects, monuments, and land and seascapes that provide cultural connections and identities as well as societal benefits. Yet, coastal heritage sites are overwhelmingly at risk from climate change induced threats, such as storm-related flooding and erosion and sea level rise. Coupling climate risks with the political and financial constraints facing heritage management, it becomes clear that damage, destruction or loss of heritage is inevitable. In this webinar you will learn about strategies for adapting and accommodating loss that center planning efforts around heritage values, enable transformation of heritage sites, and enhance transparency when difficult decisions must be made.
