approach

The joint Summer University Cultural Property Protection and the International Summer School ENVIMAT will contribute to the future wellbeing of our natural and cultural heritage by enabling the participants to rise to the challenges posed by climate change, to develop and adopt mitigation strategies and plans for the protection of our heritage assets.

Natural and man-made disasters pose a huge threat to our common natural and cultural heritage. Climate change is among these disasters and severely threatens the future wellbeing of our heritage assets. With each incident their cultural significance, historic, physical and artistic value is diminished to some degree or other. Such events also threaten the safety of occupants and users, and, inevitably, directly and adversely affect the livelihood of local communities.

The joint Summer University Cultural Property Protection and the International Summer School ENVIMAT will contribute to the future wellbeing of our natural and cultural heritage by enabling the participants to rise to the challenges posed by climate change, to develop and adopt mitigation strategies and plans for the protection of our heritage assets.

The one-week programme is based on state of the art research and EU funded projects on climate change and risk assessment for natural and cultural heritage. It aims at scientists, architects, engineers, archaeologists, site curators, cultural heritage managers, conservators, restorers, policy and decision makers, military personnel, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows alike. The faculty includes international experts on climate change, UNESCO World Heritage matters, terrace landscapes, flood modelling, and emergency planning for cultural heritage.
