Into Action: Cultural Institution Activities & We Are Still In

Updates and Opportunities

Climate Week: New York City, September

  • Are you attending? Have any announcements to share? Have questions about how to participate? Let me know sarah@sustainablemuseums.net

COP25: Santiago, Chile, December

  • Preparations are underway for a showcase of cultural institutions’ climate work at the UN Council of the Parties. If you have a climate story to share, we want to help you do it on the World stage. We’re sending a signal to the World that US museums, zoos, gardens, aquariums and historic sites are valuable resources for understanding environment and climate issues, and partners for achieving the goals. Cultural institutions have a distinctive ability to engage the public and the media with data, images, and knowledge. Now let’s give them some great examples!

Place-Based Events: Upcoming

  • August: North Carolina will gather WASI and non-WASI institutions for the second state meeting to discuss shared steps on climate action.
  • This summer Virginia will gather WASI and non-WASI institutions from all sectors to discuss shared steps on climate action.
