Seminar “Climate Changes – Heritage & Arts”

Under the EEA Financial Mechanism 2014-2021 Culture Programme in Portugal, the “Climate Change - Heritage & Arts” Seminar will be held on the 20th and 21st of October 2022, in Lisbon, organised by the Directorate-General for Cultural Heritage, the Directorate-General for the Arts, the Riksantikvaren and the Arts Council Norway, with the support of the Embassy of Norway in Lisbon.

This event aims to discuss and debate ideas, share experiences and knowledge on climate change in cultural heritage and arts.

The incentive to projects and initiatives that promote the cultural entrepreneurship, awareness and sensitization of these issues in heritage and arts is also the major focus of the Seminar, which will feature the presentation of projects funded through the EEA Grants Portugal 2014-2021 financial mechanism, from different activity areas.
