Impact of climate change on heritage



Ticket sales for this event have ended.

Scotland’s traditional buildings need to be carefully assessed and appropriately refurbished to reduce potential damage from climate change to their historic structures and cultural significance.

Join us as we delve into aspects of climate change policy, explore theoretical and practical solutions to make a difference, and discuss how we can protect Scotland’s assets for the future.

A networking lunch will provide an opportunity to continue the discussion and explore the roundhouse.
