Museums For Future
Always celebrate small wins. Even if you failed at the beginning, it’s okay. You can always start all over again.
We are a non-profit, independent organization that unites a global community of museum professionals and cultural institutions. In our mutual aim to remain below +1.5°C global heating - as stipulated in the Paris Climate Agreement - and to establish global climate justice, we are an alliance to our children and the best available science.
Vision
We envision a world in which every museum and cultural organization is climate-neutral and a bold advocate of ecological and social justice. Institutions draw on their rich cultural capital and storytelling expertise to engage their audiences and communities to safeguard a sustainable, equitable and culturally diverse future
Mission
We mobilize a global network of museum workers and institutions to participate in coordinated actions that put pressure on decision-makers to enact the Paris Climate Agreement. We foster dialogue between museums, local communities, and the public about the ecological crisis and the diverse solutions to avert it. By emphasizing the societal benefits of a sustainable transformation we activate and inspire.
