Our world is changing and historic preservation must too. Cultural fragmentation, demographic shifts, economic and political transformation, climate change, and the emergence of digital technologies that affect our relationship to place—all of these realities must be faced if preservation is to embrace its rightful role as a living and vital connection to our past. Join the conversation with our panel of thinkers and doers as we ask: What role can preservation play in enhancing the financial, environmental, social, and cultural well-being of our communities? How can we embrace the past without losing sight of our future?
