Introduction to Carbon Literacy and Environmental Sustainability – A Sharing Morning’

Event Date:7 December 2021 10:00 am — 7 December 2021 1:15pm

Climate Change is the ‘Biggest Threat Modern Humans Have Ever Faced’ according to David Attenborough. With Climate Change all over the news, it is hard to know how best to start when it comes to environmental sustainability.

This short virtual sharing session aims to introduce you to the facts around climate change and to give you and other museums the space to discuss ideas about how to become more sustainable in a world of reduced resources for all of us. We have a selection of museum speakers who have undertaken green initiatives of there own – and you will be able to hear about the pitfalls of these as well as the successes.

There will also be an opportunity to come up with ideas for how to become more sustainable in your own museum and some great take away resources to try in your own heritage environments.

This morning is aimed at smaller museums and those just starting out on their journeys, although more experienced practitioners are welcome to join us.

We recommend you sign up to this virtual session in pairs (ideally someone who handles management in your museum and someone who works with visitors) for the interactive elements of this sharing morning, you can share ideas with each other and kickstart change as a team.
