Cultural Adaptations conference

How can creativity help us adapt to climate change? 

This unique, international conference explores how cities and regions across Europe can creatively adapt to climate change impacts and the adaptation challenges faced by our arts and cultural sector. 

Showcasing unique, innovative and creative approaches to solving complex climate challenges, the conference will present new ways of working collaboratively in adaptation and bring together a diverse and ambitious group of adaptation practitioners, city officials, cultural organisations and artists from across Europe and the UK. 

PROGRAMME OVERVIEW
Speakers from Scotland, Europe and around the world will join delegates in keynote presentations, panel discussions and interactive networking sessions over four afternoons.
