The proceedings of the Stemming the Tide symposium are now published online through the Smithsonian Scholarly Press.  In early March of 2020, just days before the pandemic shut down the nation, Smithsonian hosted an informative, motivational, and action-oriented symposium titled Stemming the Tide: Global Strategies for Sustaining Cultural Heritage through Climate Change.
The two-day event addressed the impact of climate change on cultural heritage and communities worldwide, discussed the responsibilities of stewards of cultural heritage in fostering innovative solutions, addressed urgent questions of equity and inclusion, and identified strategies that leverage cultural heritage for climate action.  With 250 registrants and 1,100 live web stream viewers representing 33 states and 25 countries, ranging from the United Kingdom, Spain, and Greece to Canada, Mexico, and Trinidad and Tobago, the symposium empowered cultural heritage authorities, managers, and advocates to pursue more ambitious engagement and collaborative approaches to the climate crisis.
The volume is open access and available to read and download, at no cost, from SISP's portal<https://doi.org/10.5479/si.14750727>.
