Climate change is creating new threats to the preservation of cultural heritage. Museums may already struggle to provide the best possible care for their collections, and with increasing weather extremes and shifting pest species ranges, the challenges are mounting. This virtual conference will address some of the issues, exploring sustainable pest management; protecting collections and heritage from climate change; using more environmentally friendly conservation methods and incorporating these themes into conservation education. The meeting will take an international perspective, with contributions from the global South and the global North.
