The way we chose to face climate change challenge to cultural heritage

Nowadays the urgency to protect cultural heritage from the risks induced by climate change could not be greater.

In 2022, two strategic documents have been published: the White paper ‘Cultural Heritage and Climate Change: New challenges and perspectives for research’ and the report from the EU Open Method of Coordination (OMC) group on ‘Strengthening cultural heritage resilience for climate change’.

Europe is at the forefront of this challenge, strenuously encouraging policies to support research and innovation.

The CHARISMA (Cultural Heritage Academy for Risk Management) project is among the avant-garde initiatives on this issue, fostering the recognition of a new professional figure capable of effectively managing the risks deriving from extreme climatic events.

 

We have put together the knowledge from research and the expertise of insurance companies fighting on a daily basis against the impact of uncontrolled natural disasters.

We decided to bet on digital technologies, with the proposal of a highly specialized training course offered in blended mode and with the development of an innovative web application that will allow VET learners to sharpen their ability to implement effective emergency plans.

The climate is changing very fast.We urgently need experts able to deliver targeted and timely answers.

The project is co-financed by the European Union through the ERASMUS+ Programme under the Grant Agreement n. 2021-1-IT01-KA220-VET-000034797, with the official name of “Risk Management for Cultural Heritage”. At least 50 applicants will be trained as cultural heritage risk managers by 2024.
