Cultural Heritage in a Changing Climate

What are the effects of climate changes on cultural heritage? This is the question we asked during the Oslo Forum digital conference in September 2021. Here we present the article collection that resulted from the forum.


The Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage and Arts Council Norway hosted the 7th forum of the Baltic Region Heritage Committee (BRHC) broadcasted from The Norwegian Maritime Museum in Oslo. The digital conference in September 2021 focused on two key concepts: mitigation and adaptation as a starting point for sharing ideas and showcasing the best practices. The participants included stakeholders from the cultural heritage sector, museums, researchers, students, architects and urban planners, NGOs and municipalities in the Baltic Sea regions.

The conference and the resulting publication included the following subjects:

  • Reduction of climate change – how the cultural heritage sector can be part of the solution
  • Adaptation to climate change
  • Coastal heritage and climate change
  • Underwater cultural heritage and climate change
  • 20th century-built heritage and climate change – adaptive re-use
