Speaking at Green Museums Summit 2023:

Working Together Towards Sustainable Museums

Museums hold both the potential and responsibility to tackle environmental issues. But it can be challenging to find the best solutions to improve museums’ sustainability practices. In Finland, 13 museums have joined forces to respond to the growing concern about climate change. 

The ‘Climate Promise of Museums in Southwest Finland’ consists of concrete actions that improve museums’ environmental agency and make permanent changes in their operational models. 

Tune in to find out how the museums are learning together to reach the common goal.
