In a press release, the Climate Heritage (CHN) writes that the network represents a new kind of diversity that is necessary to take efficient climate action. CHN joins national, regional and local government bodies; cultural institutions and indigenous peoples’ organisations, as well as NGOs, universities, businesses and artists.
Climate change is indeed a global problem and the Climate Heritage Network is proud to welcome new members from Australia, Canada, Ecuador, Egypt, Ghana, Greenland, Kenya, New Zealand, Pakistan and Zimbabwe, as well as the USA, United Kingdom and countries across Europe. Collectively, the new members draw from each of the CHN’s five regions: North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe and CIS, Africa and the Arab States, and Asia-Pacific.
The Climate Heritage Network was launched in October 2019 in Edinburgh, Scotland by over 70 arts, culture and heritage organisations committed to unlocking this potential. CHN aims to unite diverse actors across the arts, culture and heritage spectrum as part of the climate action movement.
