Join us for Earth Day, 22nd of April! #MuseumsGoGreen

Earth Day is just around the corner… and that means it is time once again to participate in the #GreenWeek! This is our way to highlight the many initiatives surrounding climate action and Earth Day.

The world needs green museums. And while we may not be able to green our institutions overnight, we can turn our logos green and accompany that change with pledges, statements, facts about climate change and examples of best climate practice within the museum sector.

Use the #MuseumsGoGreen to connect with us and the wider community!

For the week of April 19th – 23rd, we encourage you to turn your institution’s logo green on social media and share your commentary or action on climate change. Who knows whom you might inspire!…and that’s not all!

Be ready to rumble by the end of the week, when we kick off our next #CuratorBattle. Under the same hashtag #MuseumsGoGreen, we challenge you to post your greenest object between April 22nd and 23rd!

#WhatWouldntBee: World Bee Day 🐝

Museum collections contain the collective material memory of mother earth and humankind. The heritage, history, and art they contain are a testament to our creativity, ingenuity, and diversity. The climate crisis puts all of this at risk.
