This year as we celebrate World Heritage Day (April 18th) and the attributes of Outstanding Universal Value that make Bath a City of global significance, BPT highlights that the next biggest threat to the City of Bath World Heritage Site is climate change, mitigation and adaptation.
“Climate change is one of the most significant threats to World Heritage properties, jeopardizing the disappearance of their Outstanding Universal Value, their integrity and the potential for economic and social development at the local level.” Say UNESCO.
In environmental education and when discussing climate actions to mitigate the effects of climate change most school age children would have heard about the 3 R’s of sustainability Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
But why stop there?
When considering this set of guidelines for sustainability in our towns and cities, and World Heritage Sites BPT propose 5 more.
Ok so that’s technically 6, and of course there could be even more. Which R’s would you add?
Redesign, reform, regenerate, regulate, remodel, replace, restore, regrow… ?
Join us for a challenge. How many R’s would you propose and why?
We’d love to hear which you would add and why.
