INTO Webinars in 2024

Welcome to our new series of webinars! This series is themed around newly released chapters of the National Trust’s climate adaptation guidance, which are aimed at helping heritage organisations worldwide care for their important sites and collections in the face of ever-increasing climate-related challenges. These sessions will cover gardens, buildings and collections, and will be delivered by National Trust experts alongside members of the wider INTO network.

  • ‘Safeguarding paper & books in the context of climate change’
  • Wednesday 20 March, 1-2pm GMT Joining link

With Nicola Walker, National Trust Senior Paper Conservator and Helena Bennett, St Helena National Trust.

Nicola will give an overview of the National Trust adaptation guidance on paper & books, with some examples of where paper collections items are at risk and how we’re responding to that challenge.

Helena will talk through the climate change-related risks to St Helena’s archive, the Endangered Archives Programme they’ve just completed to digitise their important holdings, and future conservation plans.

Climate adaptation for gardens & parks is up next – we will announce the date in our newsletter and on social media, so please follow our channels or bookmark this page.
