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!

Cultural heritage and climate change

Cultural heritage and climate change
On March 19, the Fridays For Future Movement and Europeana Climate Action Group invite you to join a meeting to discuss collective climate action with a focus on steps that the cultural heritage sector can take to achieve this.

As a sector, a call to action is needed to fight against climate change, and work together to protect our planet. The programme will highlight and share the climate action work that has been done by cultural heritage professionals, as well as introduce a Climate Action Map where cultural heritage institutions and organisations can share their climate actions, whether small or large.

 

Agenda:

10:00 – 10:10 Welcome by Barbara Fischer

10:10 – 10:20 Your Digital footprint by Patrick Ehlert

10:20 – 10:30 Inspiration on the ‘Museums On the Climate Journey’ roadmap by Diane Drubay

#ObjectsOfLove: 14 February

14 February, Valentine’s Day and International School Strike Day for the Climate. Together with climate activists from around the world, we invite museums to celebrate this day with a message of hope and climate action.

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.
