Adaptation strategies for cultural organisations
Like all sectors of society, cultural organisations need to recognise the risk that climate change poses to how they work, where they work, and who they work with. They need to anticipate the likely adverse effects, and take appropriate action to prevent or minimise the damage they can cause, or take advantage of opportunities that may arise.
To prepare for our future, our cultural organisations need to:
- Understand what changes are expected and why
- Recognise the effects these will have on their work
- Design and agree a plan of action to counter and avoid these effects: a strategy for adaptation
Cultural Adaptations is an action research project, working to identify and test the best ways to undertake this task. Across four countries, cultural organisations are working with adaptation experts to develop new knowledge for the benefit of the sector.
