UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow
Two days before the start of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, CIMAM can only ask for a unanimous agreement to fight against global warming. CIMAM recognizes climate and ecological emergency and is seriously committed to working towards sustainability understood in the broadest terms set out by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, Agenda 2030.
At CIMAM we recognize climate and ecological emergency and are seriously committed to working towards sustainability understood in the broadest terms set out by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, Agenda 2030. As an international organization dedicated to promoting best practices in modern and contemporary art museums, and to raising awareness and responding to the evolving needs of the profession, environmental sustainability is one of the main and most urgent aspects we should take care of.
CIMAM Toolkit on Environmental Sustainability in the Museum Practice
This toolkit produced thanks to the contributions of CIMAM Board members 2020–22, aims to help contemporary art museum professionals start implementing the necessary changes to become carbon neutral. It comprises the following sections:
(1) Examples of Immediate Actions
(2) Sustainability Action Plans
(3) Carbon Footprint Calculators and Certificates
(4) Sustainability Consultants
(5) Inspiring Projects, Platforms, and Resources
(6) Reading List
This Toolkit will be updated periodically with new strategies, ideas, and resources as they emerge in the museum sector to help institutions move towards sustainability and thus achieve climate-neutral impact.
