The impact of climate change on all sectors of society, including archives and cultural heritage organizations, continues to increase as the world grapples with how to confront this existential threat. From repositories in high-risk locations, to the impact and sustainability of our work, the archival profession is intimately linked to issues surrounding the changing climate. Furthermore, as stewards of cultural heritage materials, the collections we care for in our institutions contain important research data, government information, and documentation about society and individuals whose ways of life and existence are threatened by the looming changes taking place due to the ever-increasing amounts of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. This workshop speaks to the intersection between archives and digital preservation, and climate change. Participants in this workshop can expect to engage critically with the concept of climate change and its relationship to their current teaching practice(s). Additionally, we will work collaboratively to develop lesson plans, learning modules, and/or assignments that attendees can incorporate into their teaching in archives, digital preservation, cultural heritage, or digital curation courses, and/or that can be used as teaching tools with members of the public outside of formal course structures. 

Registration closes on Tuesday 13 December, 23:59 CET
