Addressing Climate Change Through Social Media | October SHSMG Event

For our October event and ahead of COP26, we’ll be hearing from Hannah Genders Boyd (@HGendersBoyd), a climate heritage researcher, archaeologist and former Historic Environment Scotland Climate Change Intern.

Hannah will be talking to the group about the climate crisis and how people in the heritage sector can use social media to inspire action, whether it’s updating social media strategies or reaching new audiences.

After the short presentation, there’ll be time for a Q&A and general discussion and we’d love to hear from you. How is your organisation addressing this emergency on social media?

When: Thurs, 7 Oct 2021 (15:00 – 16:30 BST)

Where: Online (Zoom)

Booking: Eventbrite


Thanks to our fantastic 2021 sponsor, we’re able to offer payment to all SHSMG speakers while keeping these events free for attendees:

“Whereverly create cultural and heritage tourism apps and websites.

We want tourists and locals to embrace local culture and heritage through music, song and stories, whilst discovering the hidden gems.

The Whereverly app and web platform makes creating a helpful tourism app easy. The content on Whereverly apps is produced for the most part by local communities, guides, heritage professionals, park rangers and local storytellers.

The Whereverly apps and website feature interactive maps, 3D maps, AR experiences, points of interests, favouriting and list building. As well as audio and non-audio walking, cycling, driving and rail tours. As well as music and stories delivered based on where the visitor is.

Example of our apps are Falkirk Explored, the North Coast 500, Scotland Starts Here, Explore Stirling, Highland Discovery and the Coig. We have developed supporting websites re-using the app content for the Coig and Scotland Starts Here. We are working on new heritage focussed projects which feature AR models, badge collecting and 3D maps.”
