The Museum of Applied Arts (MAK) in Vienna, a first-hour MuseumsForFuture partner, presents their 2021 program, which again highlights on issues of sustainability, high-quality craftsmanship and longevity of products, local production, and social responsibility.
The essay elaborates on the MAK initiative WIENER WERKSTÄTTE (Viennese Workshop) and the concept of CLIMATE MODERNITY.
“2021 will be a key year for setting the course for an ecologically and socially sustainable future in the Digital Age. Never since 1945 has the future been so open, never before has it been within our power to change so much in a positive direction.”
We are thrilled to announce that a new museum has joined our growing network: please welcome Museum Niederösterreich!
This wonderful museum already has a lot to be proud of concerning its commitments to sustainability, and they have no interest in stopping now.
The museum announced its support for the global Fridays For Future and Museums For Future movements in the November of 2019, and despite everything going on in the world this past year has opened a very special exhibition in the summer of 2020, entitled “Climate & Me.”
The exhibition will be on show until August 2021 in the museum’s House of Nature. For all those who will be able to visit the museum once cultural institutions re-open in Austria, making a trip to this well-founded, interactive exhibition will be well worth it!
In its mission statement, the Museum of Lower Austria has dedicated itself entirely to sustainability, and it has just become the second museum in the whole of Austria and the first in Lower Austria to be awarded the Austrian Ecolabel!
It is a great pleasure for us to officially welcome this sustainable museum to Museums For Future!
It features inspiring online presentations from renowned museum professionals speaking about the various challenges museums face(d) in 2020 and the inspiring opportunities they have to help build the world back in a better, more sustainable way.
Caitlin Southwick, founder of Sustainability in Conservation, generously offered her and her team’s profound experience to create a #MuseumsForFuture feature for December and January that helps conservation become a force for good.
Welcome to the #MuseumsForFuture feature on conservation! In collaboration with #FridaysForFuture, the museum sector will be showing our support for the climate by participating in #MuseumsForFuture where we will be inviting museums to join the movement.
