A German based research project wishes to collect national and international examples of museums’ journey towards more environmentally friendly operations. The aim of the project is to better prepare museums for climate change and the associated climate adaptation through targeted measures.

The project “Green Museum and Climate-Friendly Culture. Environmental Management of Climate-Related Risks in Museums” has published the survey to obtain a general overview of the status quo of environment, sustainability and climate protection in the German museum landscape by considering input from international examples.

The project is funded by funded by Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt and is a cooperation between Forschungsstätte der Ev. Studiengemeinschaft Heidelberg and Rathgen-Forschungslabor as well as Staatliche Museen zu Berlin - Preußischer Kulturbesitz.

Join us at NEMO's European Museum Conference “and… ACTION! Museums in the climate crisis” from 19-21 November in Lahti, Finland, to further explore how to transform museums into futureproof and sustainable organisations.
