Next week, the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of the Czech Academy of Sciences and the Municipal District - Prague Troja will host an international conference on “Managing the Protection of Cultural Heritage in Changing Environment”. The venue is especially fitting for the ProteCHt2save conference, as the historic centre of Prague is a UNESCO site at risk posed by climate change impacts (in this case floods from the Vltava river enveloping the city). As part of the conference, there will be a technical visit focused on this issue.
The main scope of the event is presenting the latest development in the Interreg Central Europe project ProteCHt2save to European and local authorities and stakeholders, with a focus on cases in Prague, and a perspective and experiences of management of cultural heritage protection in a changing environment. Giulia Pesaro will join the conference to present and illustrate the goals, the ongoing activities of CHEERS and what it has been done so far.
