Community Climate Vulnerability Assessment Workshop

Sceilg Mhichíl is one of ten World Heritage Properties involved in the Preserving Legacies: A Future for our Past project. The aim of the project is to equip communities worldwide with the tools to accurately anticipate and assess worsening and future climate impacts on culture, and help them turn that scientific knowledge into action to safeguard sites.

The National Monuments Service and the Office of Public Works in partnership with the International Council on Monuments and Sites and the Climate Heritage Network are developing a Climate Vulnerability Assessment (CVA) for Sceilg Mhichíl. A crucial aspect of developing the CVA is the input of the local community. To encourage and enable this participation, a Community CVA Workshop is being held at Portmagee Community Centre at 11.30 on Saturday the 27 April 2024. The objective of the workshop is to provide background on the work undertaken so far, to gain local insights into the impacts of climate change on the island and to map out what the priorities should be to inform adaptation measures for the future.

All are welcome to attend.
