Conference Announcement: “Historic & Green: A New Climate Agenda,” January 24, 2020, at UConn Law School
Despite their environmental benefits, Connecticut’s historic places face unprecedented threats from climate change. Preservationists must build consensus for changes to law and policy that protect historic places in service of environmental goals.
A conference scheduled for January 24 at UConn Law School, cosponsored by the Connecticut Trust and the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), aims to craft a statewide policy agenda that recognizes preservation as a fundamental environmental value. The conference—called “A Green Agenda for Old Places”—will focus on three things that law can achieve:
• Document the status of and threats to historic sites;
• Reduce potential damage to historic places through performance, construction, and siting standards; and
• Ensure that disaster response encompasses historical and cultural resources.
Join us for our first Open House Talk at an octagon house!
In this panel discussion, Crosskey Architects, the Connecticut Main Street Center, and the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation will offer practical information, creative solutions and case studies on reusing old buildings ranging from single-family residences to large mill complexes.
