Heritage on the Edge
‘Heritage on the Edge’ platform went live on Google Arts & Culture. It is an ambitious experiment in climate change and heritage communication. The results are breath-taking. ICOMOS President Toshiyuki Kono writes: ‘Above all, the project is a call to action. The effects of climate change on our cultural heritage mirror wider impacts on our planet, and require a robust and meaningful response. While actions at individual sites can prevent loss locally, the only sustainable solution is systemic change and the global reduction of greenhouse gas emissions’.
