Join and view Climate Wednesday webinars. These free webinars, hosted by Historic England in collaboration with the Climate Heritage Network, provide delegates with an in-depth look at a range of topics related to climate change and cultural heritage presented by international experts in heritage and climate change research, policy and practice. Formerly billed as 'Climate Fridays', we have moved their day and time slot to make this important and informative climate-change webinar series more accessible to professionals working in the UK and the GMT time zone.
The webinar on 26 October 2022, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CEST will be focused on Architectural well-being and planning in rural-urban communities, and the issues of dialect and language in the transmission of vernacular building knowledge.
Guests will include:
- Rim Kelouaze (Vice Chair of the CHN’s Africa and the Arab States Region, and winner of the 2019 Denis Pietton Award from the Institute Francais for her work on reviving the use of clay-based architecture for urban development);
- Dr Irem Gencer (Associate Professor in the Department of Restoration at Yildiz Technical University, and a specialist in urban preservation, vernacular architecture, and planning history); and
- Mokọ́ládé Johnson of the University of Lagos (a specialist in architectural well-being and planning focusing on rural-urban communities, with a special interest in the transmission of vernacular building knowledge).
