Contribute to this virtual conference, hosted by a partnership including ICCROM, IIC and the British Council

*Extended deadline to 2 January 2022*

Climate.Culture.Peace is a unique initiative looking to explore the interconnections between climate change, culture and heritage, peace and conflict, and disaster resilience. IIC is delighted to be a partner in this ambitious international collaboration. Our Executive Director Sarah Stannage is also on the Scientific Committee.

The conference will create spaces for exchanging knowledge and sharing experiences, practices, and research, supported by a dedicated online portal and a network of communities and individuals from around the world.

We are also bringing together knowledge holders, policy advisors, practitioners, researchers, local communities and youth leaders. We will be putting a spotlight on heritage and cultural places, which are threatened by climate-related disasters and conflicts driven by environmental stresses.

Do you have a story to share? Do you have research, knowledge, experiences, art or ideas that connect climate change, culture and heritage, peace, conflict, and disaster resilience?

Proposals can be brief (150 - 200 words) and contributions may be presentations, case studies, videos, photos, music, or recordings. You can respond to one or more of four themes, which can be interpreted broadly or creatively:
1. Culture – the missing link in addressing issues of climate and peace
2. Climate change as a risk driver for culture and people
3. Culture based mitigation, adaptation and renewal
4. State of knowledge and action

We encourage IIC members to take an active part and submit a proposal for a contribution through this  web form by 2 January, and look forward to hearing from some of you at the event later that month.
