This international non-governmental network was founded on 24 October 2019 and the City of Krakow was one of its 70 Founding Members.
The Climate Heritage Network is a voluntary organisation consisting of local and city, state/provincial and regional, indigenous and tribal, and national arts, culture and heritage governmental and quasi-governmental boards, offices, ministries, inter-governmental organizations, and site management agencies as well as NGOs, universities, businesses and other organisations.
International networking starts as an electronic/digital network but may grow into to a more multifaceted effort and concrete projects between parties. The network seeks funding for its work while initially asking members to provide in-kind services like web hosting, social media, and design services.
The network emphasizes aiding heritage actors to be full partners in the design, planning, and execution of their communities’ climate action strategies, and linking together innovative initiatives like California’s new Cultural Resources Climate Change Task Force. It also serves as a vehicle for supporting engagement by the heritage sector in other international climate platforms like the UNFCCC’s Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action.
