In our first public event of 2016 we bring together a panel with first hand academic and practical experience to discuss cultural heritage from disasters perspective.
We have brought together an expert panel from academia and practice who will discuss:
- Why the protection of cultural heritage is important and how we can protect and enhance its resilience to disasters. What are the complexities in practice?
- How existing academic discourse and research on heritage and disaster risk reduction can play role in heritage resilience?
- How the public and private sectors can be mobilized to proactively reduce disaster risk to our cultural heritage and furthermore to enhance successful recovery or reconstruction when it is impacted?
The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception, where there will be the opportunity to network and continue discussions on this topic.
