Climate change is not just a story of the degradation of our environment. It threatens the very things that make us who we are: our culture, our connection to the past, our identities. Cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, also holds information about adapting to climate change that cannot be found in traditional climate science.

Join Grace Bowie for a discussion of the power of cultural heritage in the climate movement, and how museums can play a role in reshaping the climate change narrative.
