Climate change, development and commercialization pressures and overuse are among the threats to preserving cultural sites and practices. Drawing on the examples of Buddhist caves, traditional architecture, urban design and heritage sites, this online Saturday workshop for educators will explore a variety of preservation and sustainability concerns in today’s China. Participants will receive background materials and recommendations on how these issues can be incorporated into their own courses.
