Assessing Climate Impacts: Adaptation site visit

May 15 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

The south west front of Tredegar House, Newport, South Wales, viewed from the Cedar Garden. The house is a fine example of a late seventeenth century mansion. The stone obelisk within the hedge was erected to the memory of `Sir Briggs', the horse that carried Godfrey Morgan, at the famous Charge of the Light Brigade in 1854.

Date TBC

Summary

Following on from our successful climate change adaptation workshop at last year’s Network Harvest, we will be running a site visit to Tredegar House. This will be an opportunity to think about how to assess buildings and land for potential climate impacts, using Tredegar House as a tool to carry out your own assessment. Find out what to look for and discuss potential actions that could be taken.

The aim is that the findings from the visit will be used to help start the development of a tool, which other Network members may find useful when thinking about climate impacts on their own properties or sites.

The site visit is for anyone interested in understanding more about climate change adaptation, how it differs from mitigation – and how to begin thinking about introducing adaptation approaches into their own organization.
