NMDC publishes Green Museums: Tackling the Climate Crisis
The National Museum Directors’ Council (NMDC) has published a new report, Green Museums: Tackling the Climate Crisis, which demonstrates how museums are responding to the climate emergency.
The report presents case studies from museums within the NMDC membership across three themes: research, public engagement and greening estates and operations:
- Museums use their collections, including extensive natural history and science collections, to conduct research which makes a huge contribution to fighting the climate crisis.
- Programmes and exhibitions inform audiences about environmental issues and inspire them to take positive action.
- Museums are reviewing their operations to reduce the environmental impacts of all activities. They are addressing this challenge using new technologies and implementing green solutions across their sites.
