Our advocacy work for museums

NEMO liaises with European policy makers and EU Institutions in all areas relevant to museums. We produce recommendations and co-operate with partners in the European cultural field to make our demands heard. We also help our members to build successful advocacy campaigns and support museums to make an impact on various sectors.

Our current focus topics


It is time to put museums’ potential into action. NEMO encourages museums to support a sustainable and better future and to contribute to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and the Agenda 2030. We want to inspire museums to take action for the climate and be #MuseumsforFuture.

Emergency responses

NEMO is quick at gauging museum activities and responses to different crises. Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have published two reports, mapped the response across Europe and gathered resources. We also #StandWithUkraine and published a statement and collected initial initiatives by museums in support of Ukraine after Russia invaded the country in February 2022.
