Climate change poses a significant threat to communities across Europe, which also means that our shared cultural heritage and landscapes are vulnerable. Subsequently, the significant contributions these cultural assets make are at risk, including our shared wellbeing, social cohesion, identity, local economy, territorial attractiveness, and environmental sustainability. To protect cultural heritage and landscapes is a key part of the conversation around climate change adaptation and disaster risk management, alongside other challenges facing heritage assets, like pollution and over-tourism.

RescueME will equip communities, especially those in coastal areas, with enhanced paradigms and supporting tools for protecting cultural heritage and landscapes.
