Rescuing History: Nantucket in Response to Rising Seas
Nantucket Preservation Symposium | September 16 & 17, 2020
In 2020, NPT will shift our focus from raising awareness about the need for resiliency through the lens of historic preservation in the face of sea-level rise (which we explored during 2019’s Keeping History Above Water conference) to looking at real-world strategies for adaptation that are being developed and implemented both nationally and on Nantucket. We will hear from both off-island and on-island preservationists and experts working at the intersection of preservation, planning, economics, resiliency and sea-level rise. We will also partner once again with the University of Florida’s Preservation Institute Nantucket and feature their projects as well as the work of the Town of Nantucket within the conference program.
NPT is committed to assisting our community in developing resiliency strategies while protecting the precious resource of our shared historic heritage. Our Preservation Symposium is designed to catalyze inter-disciplinary, organizational, and cross-community collaboration toward the creation of innovative solutions.
Registration opens June 22, 2020.
