Climate.Culture.Peace aims to share and exchange knowledge, research, practices and capacities through a multi-day virtual conference, knowledge portal, and network of invested communities and individuals. 

This initiative is generously supported by the British Council’s Cultural Protection Fund (CPF) in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). 

The conference seeks participation from all around the world; contributions from the CPF target countries (Afghanistan, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Palestinian Territories, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda and Yemen) across the Middle East and Africa are particularly encouraged.

Culture can and should play a role in reducing the impacts of climate change.

To guide this initiative, Climate.Culture.Peace outlines four themes that broadly capture how culture and heritage are intertwined with climate change and human experiences of peace, conflict, and disasters. These themes may be interpreted broadly and creatively.

  • “Culture – the missing link” 
  • “Climate change as a risk driver for culture and people” 
  • “Culture-based mitigation, adaptation and renewal” 
  • “State of knowledge and action” 

Do you have a story to share? 

Do you have research, knowledge, experiences, art or ideas on the connection between climate change, culture and heritage, disaster resilience, peace and peace-building, or conflict? With this call, we warmly invite you to submit a proposal for contribution using our web-platform.
