Heritage at High Tide: Archaeology and Climate Crisis in the Eastern Mediterranean – A Deep Dive into Cyprus’ and Greece’s Imperiled Treasures

April 6 @ 8:30 am - April 7 @ 11:30 am

a panel discussion organized by Professor Ioanna Kakoulli
(Acting Director, UCLA SNF Center for the Study of Hellenic Culture)

The Eastern Mediterranean, a cradle of ancient civilizations, stands at the precipice of an unprecedented challenge. Coastal areas, including the island of Cyprus and Greece, like other regions in the Mediterranean are witnessing the relentless advance of the sea due to climate change. Rising sea levels, heightened temperatures, extreme weather events, and marine erosion are endangering archaeological sites, Byzantine relics, and other critical historic landmarks. With climate data projecting a rise of 90cm in sea level by 2100 in the Mediterranean, the risk to our global heritage is immediate and undeniable.
