Climate Change Impacts on the Historic Environment: Assessing the Risk and Taking Action
This one day seminar will bring together heritage organisations from across the UK to showcase work being undertaken to identify and quantify risks from climate change, and to share best practice.
This event will have particular relevance for practitioners or organisations who are looking to better understand the risk climate change poses to their own estate or property, or to the wider historic environment.
