Speaking at Green Museums Summit 2023:
Sustainability as Team Sport
In August 2022, eleven art institutions founded the initiative ‘Eleven to Zero’. It aims to bring about tangible change in the operations of museums and reach net-zero emissions in the long run. Over six months, the participating institutions calculated their carbon footprints, trained 20 people as “transformation managers”, formed a strong and diverse network and defined a work schedule for the future. This presentation will take you behind the scenes of the project and share insight on how to approach sustainability as a team sport.
