What do rising sea levels and violent actions by non-state actors have in common? James Cuno, President and CEO of The J. Paul Getty Trust, discusses how both result in social instability and damage to, if not destruction of, monuments and sites of cultural heritage. Learn how the Getty is working to address these through its new initiative, “Ancient Worlds Now: A Future for the Past.” Offered in connection with the exhibition Queen Nefertari: Eternal Egypt.
