Ground Check | Final Discussion and Closing Event 🗓

Scheduled Post

Archaeology provides high-resolution data on local and regional effects of climate changes in a long-term perspective. These climate changes did not affect people to the same degree everywhere. In the area of cultural preservation we face growing challenges that result from the effects of climate change and that can only be solved in an interdisciplinary manner, jointly and in networks. In the closing event key findings from the previous discussions will be presented, providing a result of the discussion series in an interdisciplinary manner and with an international perspective.
