Abstract (in English)

Intangible cultural heritage (ICH) is manifested in our oral traditions, art and craftsmanship, rituals and sports, traditional knowledge of biosphere, natural resource use and management. Unfortunately, just as we have seen denial in the past in accepting the realities of climate change, ICH is still missing in the mainstream dialogue and discourse on actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Perhaps this culture-nature divide is a symptom of larger processes which have put us in an unsustainable path. The following sections explore the ways in which climate change is affecting our intangible cultural heritage and the role of heritage professionals in bridging the gap between climate change and heritage conservation and safeguarding.
