"Culture is the missing link for global climate action"
By Silvia Sansano Colomina
No one could have predicted that at the same moment that Croatia was going into lockdown at the very beginning of the pandemic, in March 2020, the country would be rocked by a devastating earthquake. With the pandemic still ongoing, Croatia was hit by a second horrific earthquake, not even a year later, just before the new year. Despite the obstacles and heartache, conservators wasted no time in assessing damage and organizing recovery efforts for Croatia’s cultural heritage.
