Among the many changes at PastForward last month in Savannah was the inauguration of TrustLive. These four marquee presentations brought together new voices and new ideas to focus on the intersections between historic preservation and larger issues. TrustLive was also live streamed and virtually attended by people from across the nation and around the globe, as well as recorded for an even wider viewership to keep the important discussions around these issues going.
If you were not in Savannah to watch them in person or were not one of the more than 800 people who viewed them online, or if you saw the TrustLive presentations and wanted to share them with your peers and colleagues, you can now watch the TrustLive presentations below.
Each TrustLive is approximately 60 minutes long and begins with a talk by a thought leader followed by a TalkBack segment with additional topic experts contributing their ideas and experiences and engaging attendees.
The 2014 PastForward TrustLive presentations focused on climate change, entrepreneurship, data mapping, and engaging new audiences. The first-ever TrustLive, preservationTOMORROW, explored how historic preservation must resonate with younger, non-majority and more culturally diverse audiences to stay relevant and featured Majora Carter, Urban Revitalization Strategist, Peabody Award winning broadcaster, and MacArthur "genius" Fellow. Carter was joined by responders Julia Bache, senior, Kentucky Country Day School and Girl Scouts Gold Award Winner; Matt Goebel, director, Clarion Associates; Holly Sidford, co-author, Making Meaningful Connections: Characteristics of Arts Groups that Engage New and Diverse Participants; and moderated by Marita Rivero, chair, Board of Trustees, National Trust for Historic Preservation.

The final TrustLive, preservationCRISIS, sponsored by the National Park Service, considered national climate change challenges within a global context and featured John Englander, oceanographer, consultant and sea rise expert.
