Event Details

Scotland’s traditional buildings must be carefully assessed and appropriately retrofitted to mitigate the potential damage of climate change to their historic fabric and cultural significance.

Join us as we delve into aspects of climate change policy, explore theoretical and practical solutions that are making a difference, and discuss how we can protect Scotland’s assets for the future.

A networking lunch will provide you with the opportunity to continue discussions and explore the Engine Shed.

Learning outcomes

You will:

  1. Understand the emerging threats to Scotland’s historic built environment stemming from increased rainfall, increasing temperatures, and rising sea levels.
  2. Learn about how HES (and Scotland as a whole) aims to combat the immediate effects of climate change at both policy and practical levels.
  3. Identify the most immediate and damaging ways Scotland’s traditional buildings are affected by a changing climate and the best measures to be taken to address this challenge.
