A Culture of Resilience: Mobilising Arts, Culture and Heritage to Win the Race to Zero in the Asia-Pacific Region | 17 November 2020 | 8:00 AM IST

This event is part of a series of three dialogues that the Climate Heritage Network is hosting in different time zones across the planet during Climate Heritage Week. Each of these 3 dialogue is aimed at a different global region and will highlight concrete culture-based strategies being implemented through new partnerships between cultural actors and stakeholders across sectors. Dialogues will address specific barriers that can hinder such multi-stakeholder collaborations and will explore the links between these resilience measures and key 1.5-degree pathways like food and cities. You can read more about the whole 3 dialogue series below or here: https://www.culturexclimate.org/dialogues

The CHN dialogue series is in turn a part of the broader November Dialogues planned by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) High-Level Climate Champions for Climate Action – Nigel Topping and Gonzalo Muñoz. We are extremely proud that this event marks one of the first times that the topic of culture and heritage has been included in a high level UN event of this type. The UN November Dialogues form a part of the High Level Champions’ ‘Race To Zero,’ a global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery.

Professor Dr Amareswar Galla will speak at the event in the Roundtable: Creativity, design, art and cultural heritage as decarbonisation pathways for cities and buildings. Click here to view the schedule.
