A programme to develop solutions and actions for museums to respond to the climate emergency by We Are Museums in collaboration with EIT Climate-KIC
By combining the expertise of EIT Climate-KIC with the international community of We Are Museums, we want to construct a blueprint for a better future.
We have been working on a transformation process, starting with the pilot event in November 2019 at the Futurium in Berlin (Step 1), followed by a series of local awareness-building events in South Australia, Sweden, Paris and Berlin and a series of small-scale workshops happening across Europe (Step 2 &3 ). Next in line will be testing & implementing actions and solutions (Step 4) and revision of systemic impact and global sharing of best practices (Step 5).
The pilot event took place at the Futurium, the recently-opened and future-focused museum in Berlin. We welcomed around 25 museum experts with expertise around climate action and community engagement, as well as a variety of experts like architects, journalists, systemic innovation designers, and more.
