The conference, which took place from 7-10 November 2019, illustrated how museums can incorporate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in their work. The conference showed that museums are excellent key players and that they should be recognized and supported by EU policy makers for their work contributing to a sustainable future. Museums also make great partners for making the SDGs accessible since they already are familiar with translating processes of change and communicating concepts from global to local level in an understandable way.
In 2020, we will meet in Rijeka, Croatia, from 15-17 November for NEMO’s European Museum Conference. Enter your email address to receive a reminder once the registration opens in June.
