Title of the Report:
Climate, Social and Economic Sustainability: How Modern and Contemporary Art Museums are Acting to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. A report by CIMAM.
According to the COP26 meeting conclusions, the fight against climate change must also encompass the fight against social and economic inequalities, at all levels, from the individual, through the community, to the national and international.
This report is originated by the CIMAM Sustainability and Ecology in Museum Practice working group (consisting of eight members of the CIMAM Board).
CIMAM's survey will provide an overview of the status and progress of modern and contemporary art museums and cultural institutions towards achieving the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).
The report will link the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) with the museum's core values and allows CIMAM to broaden its approach in promoting sustainable practices in museums' social and economic fields to its members.
By promoting innovative solutions, amplifying the voices of marginalized groups, and being a leading educational institution, museums will achieve including all members of society in the fight against climate change.
The aim is to have a quantitative overview on a global scale. The 9 SDGs selected are the ones most related to the goals of inclusion, education, equality, diversity, among others, that museums can lead or make their own.
SDG 4: Quality and education.
SDG 5: Gender equality.
SDG 8: Decent work and economic growth.
SDG 10: Reducing inequalities.
SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities.
SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production.
SDG 13: Climate action.
SDG 16: Peace, justice, and strong institutions.
SDG 17: Partnership for the Goals.
