Why museums should become Carbon Literate, where to start and what next

Aware of the climate emergency but not sure how your museum can contribute? Museum Development England has secured funding for Roots & Branches, a project to support all museums to become carbon literate and take steps to cut their carbon footprint.  Find out more with project organisers Kaye Hardyman from Museum Development North West and Alison Criddle, Museum Development Carbon Literacy Officer. This is also a chance to tell us which topics you want more in-depth information about, as you develop your museum’s environmental responsibility.

Insightful, interactive and informal, come along to gain new insights from our guests, meet colleagues from the region, and connect with the MDY team. Everyone who works and volunteers in museums in our region is most welcome, including museum freelancers who want to stay connected during this time.
