Abstract: Researchers and practitioners of cultural heritage conservation are increasingly aware of the field’s impact on the physical and social environment. Faculty at the UCLA/Getty Program in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage are working to support the next generation of researchers and practitioners to become leaders in adapting conservation for the climate crisis and addressing social inequity. This paper presents the first stage of an initiative to develop models for embedding sustainable practices into conservation education and producing scalable curricula for broad dissemination. In this first phase, we performed literature reviews, canvassed the field through surveys, conducted interviews and developed curricula for our laboratories and classrooms. Survey results indicate a high international interest in incorporating sustainability principles in cultural heritage education, but with a corollary challenge of being unable to substitute new concepts for those already taught. Literature reviews and interviews introduced the authors to existing pedagogical approaches for embedding sustainability within our courses. Sustainability concepts such as the Three Pillars of Sustainability, the United Nations Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the Inform, Engage, Empower and Embed (I3E) systems provide guidance in our teaching. The next phase of the initiative will involve a close evaluation of pedagogical systems for integrating sustainability into the existing curriculum to ensure that emerging professionals in art conservation, built heritage, libraries, archives, archaeology and historic preservation will prioritize intersectional environmentalism. A future goal is to disseminate educational models broadly for adaptation by others.

Title: , “Climate Change: Conservation Education is Key to this Agenda”

Abstract: I cannot express how delighted I am to see this special issue about sustainability with so many remarkable contributions. In response to heading in this challenging direction, we have been confronting our professional status quo. Most importantly, we are generating debate about the subject, including everyone in the discussion, creating awareness and considering possible solutions. For this issue I opted to focus the content of the column on another subject that I am very interested in: conservation education. I strongly believe that education is key to addressing climate change. Here I am referring not only to formal education, but also to the responsibility we, as professionals, have towards others who are coming into the profession from formal training, work experience, apprenticeship or any other perspective. I also include our responsibility for the communities we inhabit. There are so many ways we can share and facilitate knowledge as well as learn from other perspectives.
