The Climate Heritage Manifesto for COP27

The Climate Heritage Network provides key messages on culture and climate change aimed at the 2022 United Nations Climate Conference (COP27) and beyond.

It strives to trigger those involved in arts, culture, and heritage “to take climate action through communication and engagement, inspiring and assisting their constituents, members and audiences to increase ambition; to change their own behaviours; and to engage with climate change policy development at local and national government and intergovernmental level.”

At the same time, considering the climate emergency, the Manifesto’s mission is to unite the cultural and other sectors in synergetic collaboration on climate action. 

“We invite civil society, government at all levels, Indigenous Peoples’ organisations, cultural organizations and institutions, businesses, universities and research organisations and other stakeholders to join us in signing on to this Manifesto, signaling our shared ambition to help people imagine and realise low carbon, just, climate resilient futures through the power of culture – from art to heritage” states the Climate Heritage Network. 

If you are convinced that culture has the power to change our climate future, join Culture Action Europe and other cultural stakeholders, networks, and institutions actors signing the Manifesto here.
