Theme 2022: Heritage and Climate
This year, "Heritage and Climate" is the underlying theme of the International Day of Monuments and Sites.
A theme chosen bearing in mind the way climate emergency affects societies, raising awareness of the importance of protecting the cultural heritage from adverse climate impacts, such as global warming, ecosystem change, situations of extreme drought or rising water levels.
At the same time, the aim is to look at the big causes of sustainability and circular economy from the point of view of the cultural heritage, proposing a reflection on the potential the cultural heritage has for the construction of an inclusive, transformative and fair climate action.
