International Symposium on the Future of Museum Climate Seen in the Context of Global Climate Change

Wednesday 13 January 2010 (Categories: Non ICOM/ICOM-CC)

An international symposium on the future of museum climate seen in the context of gobal climate change will be held on Monday March 1st, 2010 at the National Gallery of Denmark, Copenhagen. The internationally renowned speakers will address some of the questions which are inherent to the climate challenges: Can we gather the museum field nationally and/or internationally around new acceptable climate requirements for exhibition galleries and storage? How can we create exhibitions and expose our common cultural heritage in a sustainable way which is also acceptable for future generations? How can museums be run in a more CO2 neutral way while simultaneously guaranteeing an adequate indoor climate? Can we envision Green Museums as role-models for society? And lastly, how does a global movement such as Cradle-to-Cradle see the function of the museum as keepers of the past and torches for the future?
