Conference themes have tackled pressing issues for Canada’s heritage movement, including community revitalization, heritage tourism, sustainable .. Read more development, and climate change. As the world hits the reset button, the National Trust in association with the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals invites you to be part of a cross-Canada conversation about the responsibility and the opportunity heritage conservation practitioners have at this critical moment. Heritage and the Global Reset will bring together 500+ participants from a diverse range of backgrounds – from architects to conservation practitioners and public policymakers, from heritage volunteers to elected officials, Indigenous partners and students – in a virtual platform designed to facilitate productive discussions that actively advance the heritage sector and change our world. The heritage sector has long known that we cannot build our way out of the climate crisis. And yet the national emphasis of climate crisis response remains focused on resource-heavy solutions – for instance ill-conceived intensification, the quest for zero-net carbon operation, and other “green” goals – which are putting counter-productive pressure on Canada’s heritage places. Faced with these pressures, how is the heritage sector recalibrating its heritage principles, practices, and public posture to enable building reuse and landscape preservation, build allies, and shift public attitudes? How can heritage practitioners, volunteers, policymakers, and others create an inclusive culture of conservation?
