IPCC Sixth Assessment – how can heritage trusts respond?

AnnouncementsBlogsClimate change August 17, 2021

Last week the IPCC’s sixth assessment report sent an unyielding message; the time to respond to the climate emergency is now, not tomorrow. The need for a holistic and collaborative approach is urgent.

INTO is an active voice in climate change impact and adaptation debates; and this has never felt more important as climate change threatens to undermine global heritage and cultures. Our role as convener of a network, is to highlight innovation and share solutions to collective concerns.

Our Secretary-General Catherine Leonard took a moment to reflect on the role of the world’s national trusts in bringing a robust culture-inclusive response to the climate crisis.

Have climate expertise to share?

Climate change is one of the largest threats to the world's heritage. We're always looking for innovation and best practice in climate mitigation and adaptation.

Have a story you want to tell?

Good ideas should be shared: as we approach COP26 this Autumn, we'll be bringing the voices of the world's national trusts to international stage.
