Climate Strike in Vienna!

Global Climate Strike!

Global Climate Strike!
Museums For Future will take part in the #NoMoreEmptyPromises campaign by hosting an online #CuratorBattle with the theme #BiggestMouth. Are you in?
Show us the #biggestmouth of your collection in a Twitter or Instagram post!
Decision-makers are fast when it comes to applauding and promising Climate Action.
But besides a big mouth, we need real action … so we decided to approach this with a
pinch of humor. Find an object with the most spectacular mouth in your collection (as
an individual find big-mouthed artworks and link the museum), post it with the hashtag #BiggestMouth, nominate other institutions or people and help us get the message out for #NoMoreEmptyPromises.

Take a look at the Museum Climate Action Day Map shared by The ENA Climate Group & We Are Museums and join their Climate Strike Day Online Event on March 19th. Come, network, hang out, and get inspired by other institutions on how they are trying to become a role model in fighting the biggest crisis of our time.

Welcome, Museum Niederösterreich!

Welcome, Museum Niederösterreich!

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!

To learn more about the museum, visit their website, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
