The role of culture and heritage in responding to climate change, and leading us into a more sustainable, adapted world, is a key source of interest for those designing the cities of the future. In May 2020, the Cultural Adaptations project was featured in this webinar as an example of such experimental research in practice.
This was the last episode of ROCK Green Streams, a free series of inspiring talks and presentations on how cities reduce the environmental impact of cultural events. The webinar was produced by ROCK EU (Regeneration and Optimisation of Culture heritage in creative and Knowledge cities): an EU Horizon 2020-funded project exploring how cultural heritage can be a powerful tool for regeneration, sustainability and growth. ROCK EU is led by the City of Bologna and has 32 partner organisations across Europe, including EUROCITIES and Julie’s Bicycle, who hosted this webinar series. Part of the project explores the production of sustainable cultural events in cities.
The webinar also highlights the importance of communicating sustainability, highlighting case studies from Bologna and Edinburgh (including our partner Creative Carbon Scotland’s work with the Green Arts Initiative).
Cultural Adaptations is discussed from 06:45 – 21:30.
