Edinburgh World Heritage will be hosting the fifth and final partnership meeting of the AtlaS.WH project on 13 and 14 April 2021.

A sustainable future for our World Heritage cities - free public events

The final partnership meeting of the Atlas.WH project: part of the week of World Heritage Sites.

Over the past three years, the AtlaS.WH project has explored the sustainable management of urban World Heritage Sites in Porto, Bordeaux, Florence, Santiago de Compostela, and Edinburgh.

As this major project draws to a close, and to mark the week of World Heritage Sites, Edinburgh World Heritage will host the fifth and final series of partnership events, bringing together leading experts to explore the role of heritage in solving issues related to the climate emergency. Guests include the five project partners, experts from the Scottish heritage sector, Edinburgh city managers, and international partners.

Over two days, the plans for each urban World Heritage Site will be presented, and we will discuss how the impact of climate change is assessed and addressed through case studies and the latest in sector research.

We invite you to join us for any or all of these free, public CPD sessions, to ask questions and build your understanding on how heritage can be a solution to the climate emergency.
