Stemming the Tide Symposium

Global Strategies for Sustaining Cultural Heritage Through Climate Change

Thursday, March 5—Friday, March 6, 2020

Climate change has become one of the most significant and fastest growing threats to people and their cultural heritage around the globe. Yet cultural heritage sites and collections can also serve as an invaluable source of resilience for communities to address climate change.

Join the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Smithsonian’s National Collections Program for a series of presentations and discussions that explore the intersection of cultural heritage and climate change. This two-day conversation will examine the impact of climate change on cultural heritage and communities worldwide, discuss the responsibilities of stewards of cultural heritage in fostering collaborative solutions, address urgent questions of equity and inclusion, and identify strategies that leverage cultural heritage for climate action.
