The OWHC renews its support for the Climate Heritage Network
The Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC) is proud to announce its membership in the Climate Heritage Network for 2021. Climate science reminds us that adaptation and mitigation are essential to fight the climate crisis. Culture and heritage provide the creativity and inspiration to show us how to achieve it.
The OWHC, on the initiative of its President and Mayor of Krakow, Mr. Jacek Majchrowski, is proud to figure among the founding signatories of the Climate Heritage Memorandum of Understanding and is willing to take concrete actions to fight the climate crisis.
