CulturePolis organized its 1st Roundtable Meeting for 2024 on “The Role of Culture in Climate Action”.

The meeting was inspired by the Global Call to Put Cultural Heritage, Arts and Creative Sectors at the Heart of Climate Action which was launched in September 2023 during the European Cultural Heritage Summit.

Mrs. Mary Tziraki, representative of ELLINIKI ETAIRIA (Society for the Environment and Cultural Heritage – ELLET), opened the meeting upon invitation of CulturePolis and informed the participants about the Call for Action as Founding Signatory of the Call. The introduction was followed by a discussion to explore possible synergies for new actions and submit proposals to cover the gaps in current policies.

We were also honoured by the presence of representatives from Civinet Greece-Cyprus, LUDD, Mediterranean Institute for Nature and Anthropos, Place Identity Clusters, The Heritage Management Organization, and Boulouki.

Stay tuned for our next actions:
