Urban Agenda

for a laboratory on culture, cities and climate change

The EU program Urban Agenda is an intergovernmental initiative launched by the “Pact of Amsterdam” of 30 May 2016 with the aim of promoting – through participation in defining of European policies – a balanced, sustainable, and integrated development of European cities which increases their livability and attractiveness and which stimulates innovation.

The project

The Italian Ministry of culture represents Italy in the “Culture and cultural heritage” partnership, and it works with the aim to recognize to cultural heritage a central and strategic role within the Green Deal policies. It supports and encourages the local urban authorities to enforce plans for climate change adaptation that take into consideration cultural heritage, through shared plans of action with the local institutions, research centers, citizens, and professionals.

In this context, the Segretariato Generale of the Italian Ministry of culture has requested the support of the Fondazione Scuola dei beni e delle attività culturali in the implementation of the following activities.

The knowledge base
The survey of policies, European and national regulatory frameworks, guidelines and recommendations, state of the art, projects, and any other relevant implemented actions is beneficial for a thorough comprehension of the context. On the other side, mapping existing networks and active actors in the research and implementation of good practices is preliminary to any actions that aim to develop a European network.

All of these data are collected and organized in the digital databaseThe Culture / Cultural Heritage and Climate Change Knowledge Base”.

With this resource, professionals and stakeholders can refer to updated relevant data, which can foster new connections among actors and help spread knowledge on such a relevant topic.

The European Observatory on culture/cultural heritage and climate change in the urban context
A laboratory where urban, regional, and national authorities can share visions and practices, recognize needs and identify opportunities together with researchers and stakeholders. Where they can experiment and implement actions for the safeguard of culture and cultural heritage against the effects of climate change.

The state of the art and the survey of international experts’ perspectives have now converged in a report that presents a feasibility study for a European Observatory on culture/cultural heritage and climate change in the urban context. This document offers recommendations on the scope, purpose, and functions as well as on the governance of the Observatory.
