CIMAM at the International Forum on Arts and Sustainability
We are pleased to announce that Suzanne Cotter, Chair of CIMAM's Working Group on Sustainability and Ecology in Museums, will be one of the featured speakers at the International Forum on Arts and Sustainability to be held in Taiwan and can be followed online via the YouTube channel. Cotter will present the compelling topic, "Custodianship Extends to the Planet - About the Museum and Sustainability."
📅 Date and time: Saturday, November 25, at 15:15 Taiwan time.
📍 Session 7: "Sustainable Development for Museums."
👥 Session shared with Frances Morris, Director Emerita of Tate, who will speak on "Climate Emergency - from Critical Reflection to Creative Action."
This year's forum focuses on the critical intersection between art and sustainability. In the wake of the global commitment to "net zero emissions by 2050," the cultural and creative industries are transforming towards low-carbon practices. Suzanne Cotter, together with Frances Morris, former CIMAM's Working Group on Sustainability and Ecology in Museums member, will discuss museums' key role in achieving these sustainability goals.
The forum aims to improve knowledge and understanding of scientific methods of environmental quantification within the cultural and creative industries. With a thematic focus on "carbon", academics and experts worldwide will discuss quantifying carbon emissions and planning effective reduction strategies. The broader goal is to encourage the creation of green teams within organizations, promoting sustainable practices and strengthening climate governance capabilities.
