Adapt Northern Heritage Conference 2020

05 to 07 May 2020, Edinburgh, Scotland

Deadline now extended to Thursday, 17th October.

Climate change is threatening historic places across the world, especially in the world’s northern regions. The international Adapt Northern Heritage Conference 2020 will explore practices and research concerned with:

• assessing the environmental impacts of climate change and their associated risks on historic places

• planning and/or implementing adaptation measures to make historic places more resilient to climate change, where possible, or alternatively manage their loss.

This peer-review conference offers themed parallel sessions over the course of two days with oral and poster presentations. On the third day, relevant case study visits and other social activities are on offer, details of which will be announced in autumn 2019.

The conference is organised by the European project Adapt Northern Heritage (2017-2020), which is supported by the European Union, Iceland and Norway through the Interreg Programme for the Northern Periphery and Arctic. The project has researched climate change adaptation for historic places and supported communities in understanding better the impacts of climate change on their heritage sites and preparing for their adaptation.

Abstracts of a maximum of 300 words, including a short biography of a maximum of 100 words, are to be submitted online only via the EasyChair platform:
