A liveable world is a matter of choice – How does a museum fulfill its social role?
Whereas museums used to be independent institutions, nowadays you see that museums increasingly see a social role for themselves. But how do you give it shape in a way that suits you? We would like to share our experience of how Naturalis takes a more active stance in the social debate on biodiversity, nature and climate. With the project JongerenXNaturalis we show how we, together with young people who are concerned about the quality of life on our planet for future generations, put pressure on politicians by jointly writing a manifesto followed by various debates.
