Climate change impacts and natural disasters such as sea level rise, coastal floods, extreme weather, and increases in bushfire frequency and intensity put many archaeological and heritage sites at risk from erosion, inundation, and destruction. This potential loss of heritage—both tangible and intangible— is grave and requires immediate mitigative action.
Our 3-day workshop will introduce the participants to the process of identifying and managing risks to heritage places, including their landscape settings, interiors collections and movable heritage. The workshop will include two days of lectures and workshops and one day in the field to put theory into practice. It will be delivered on campus at Flinders University but will also be available via a dedicated Teams/Zoom link.
The course takes a multi-hazard approach and will engage multiple areas of expertise ranging from emergency management, emergency response, cultural heritage management, policy, and strategic planning for disaster.
