E1 Webinar: Boosting resilience of Europe’s cultural heritage to climate change

Thursday, 28 April, 2022, 10:00-16:00 (CET)

Call for Webinar


Built heritage in Europe and throughout the world is at risk of human-induced disasters and the impacts of climate change. Yet, heritage is also a key renewable resource for mitigating and adapting to climate change. Tackling climate change is this generation’s ultimate challenge and task, and the interaction among a variety of disciplines play a critical role in achieving resilient and sustainable built heritage in Europe. This multi/cross-disciplinary knowledge requires the development of innovative methods and tools, as well as capacities, to address the impact of climate change, to enhance the potential of heritage for building a comprehensive climate-sensitive and environmentally friendly academic and professional climate action. 


The e-CREHA webinar titled “Boosting resilience of Europe’s cultural heritage to climate change” invites students, researchers, tutors, experts, professionals and policy makers to poster submissions on cross-cultural pedagogies in Heritage Learning, which presents best practices from both the academic and professional practice fields such as architecture and built environment, heritage studies, engineering, design, climate science, software technologies and informatics, tourism and geography, etc. Poster submissions that focus on the topics of resilience, vulnerability, impact, adaptation and mitigation are particularly welcome, but any topic relevant to climate resilience heritage will be taken into consideration. The webinar will focus on three themes that will be covered in three poster sessions initiated by three keynote speakers:

  • Theme 1 - Vulnerability and impact assessment 

  • Theme 2 – Knowledge and mitigation efforts

  • Theme 3 – Adaptation of built heritage  


Posters will be peer-reviewed by members of the Scientific Committee based on originality, significance, quality, and clarity. Abstracts of accepted posters will be included in the e-CREHA book and will be displayed on the project website (  


Participation is free of charge. The webinar is supported by the e-CREHA Erasmus+ K2 Project 2020-2023.


The Webinar will be held via ZOOM on April 28, 2022. The Webinar link
