Project: Wetland Futures in Contested Environments: an inter- and transdisciplinary approach to wetland heritage in The Netherlands, United Kingdom and Ireland.

Acronym WETFUTURES (Reference Number: JPICH.DH.17.035)
Project Topic WetFutures focusses on key wetland environments in Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom to act as test cases for the identification of active and passive changes in those regions, and to identify ways in which the heritage of wetlands can contribute to contemporary social challenges. Wetland environments are amongst the most dynamic landscape types in Europe, experiencing change from climatic, demographic, economic and political influences. They have also been an area of human utilisation and exploitation for millennia, resulting in an incredible richness and diversity of tangible and intangible heritage. Wetlands across Europe, and around the world, are actively undergoing rapid change and development, but there are no tailor-made or proactive studies to identify the impacts of change on the heritage contained within wetlands.
