Event description
A lecture and panel discussion on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their relationship with Cultural Heritage.

About this Event

Conservation is more than preservation; it is invariably a dynamic compromise focusing on the protection and often the reinterpretation of our heritage. It is essentially about development albeit of a specialised form. It is a well accepted paradox that buildings and places that have been adapted through the ages are the ones that survive today. At no time in the past has conservation been more challenging than it is today. Today’s demands to sustainably adapt for climate change and contemporary needs, be it a dwelling, a public building, a commercial structure, or an historic urban environment, calls for an advanced philosophical approach and new skill sets.

Dr Cara Augustenborg’s talk will address the philosophical and practical considerations of these challenges within the context of the Sustainable Development Goals. Our panel of experts will respond and continue the discussion.
