WCC central committee moderator Bishop Dr Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, who spoke at the symposium, noted that religion reaches not only people’s heads but also their hearts. “

The Importance of Preserving Our Artistic and Landscape Heritage
Climate Change and Heritage Forum
in Florence, Italy, underlined the need of looking at climate change and biodiversity loss through the lens of human security. Participants agreed on the necessity of protecting our common cultural and landscape legacy in the face of climate change, as well as the importance of sustainable development models that take human security into account.
Former UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova
emphasized the link between human security and the preservation of our common legacy, underlining the importance of heritage in forming our identities and sense of belonging.
Human security is about protecting the people and the planet – it is also about preserving our common heritage of humanity,” said Bokova. “Heritage is about us, people, it’s not about bricks and stones, it’s about who we are and where we come from. It’s about identities and a sense of belonging, it’s about sharing and respect for diversity. It’s about the past as much as about the future.
Climate change, biodiversity loss, cultural heritage, and human security are all interrelated, according to
Donato Kiniger Passigli, Executive Co-Chair of the HS4A campaign
. He emphasized the significance of a people-centred approach to security, as well as the need to address economic, health, and environmental concerns.
