Recap: Green Week 2021

Recap: Green Week 2021

Thank you so much for your last contribution(s) during our Green week from April 19th-23rd 2021. Together with museums and museum professionals (and of course museum go-ers and art enthusiasts) we celebrated Earth Day and asked museums to go green. We were stunned how many of you showed up and off: so many marvelous #greenestobjects were highlighted in our second #curatorbattle and many more green events happened near and far. And even though, we said in our call to action that we “may not be able to turn our institutions green overnight”, all our social media feeds somehow magically did. Thank you for being part of this!

Thank you all for making the (museum) world greener! #museumsgogreen.

Statement: Science Museum

As Museum For Future we welcome past and current efforts by the Science Museum to incorporate sustainability issues in their working practices, collections care and public education. We also recognize that there are and have to be many solutions when it comes to tackling the climate crisis and that it is imperative  to share knowledge about climate innovations with the wider public.

However, we also see direct sponsorship of the upcoming “Our Future Planet” exhibition at the Science Museum through Shell as highly problematic and contradictory.

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!
