Webinar: The Resilient Museum
Wednesday 27th January 2016

What can museums do as buildings, social spaces, and cultural institutions to embody sustainable practice - environmentally, socially and economically?
This webinar is designed to provide a holistic overview of sustainability within museums and will include examples from the sector and transferable actions for improvement.
Lucy Latham, Environmental Sustainability Coordinator at Julie's Bicycle will be joined by Hilary Jennings, Director of the Happy Museum Project.

She is trustee of the global Transition Network, BioRegional (One Planet Living) and Interim Chair of the Craft Industry Board.

Join Julie’s Bicycle and a range of creative professionals for presentations and a live discussion which will showcase technical and behavioural interventions to support happy, healthy and resilient community spaces and workplaces.
