Job opening: CEO for Museum for the UN - UN Live

Dear Museums for Climate Change Network,

Museum for the United Nations – UN Live is looking for a new CEO. Our museum is not an ordinary museum, and as such, we are looking beyond who you would normally expect to be a museum leader - integrity, passion and entrepreneurship are the keywords for this position. UN Live’s vision is “to connect people everywhere to the values and work of the United Nations”, so the person with the perfect profile could come from any number of professional spheres – media, civil society, philanthropy, culture, or something else entirely – no doors are closed. 

 Taking the initiative from start-up to global institution will require someone with an exceptional ability to mobilise people around a common mission. Someone who can build global inter-sector networks. And someone who has an unwavering commitment to the sustainability agenda. If you are this person, or know an exceptional someone who fits this description, we would love to hear from you.

Thanks very much,

Rebecca Neale

International Symposium on Climate Change and the role of Education

April 12th and 13th, 2019

Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln, UK

Education in all its forms plays a crucial role, globally and locally, in engaging and empowering people to act to alleviate the impacts of the climate change. Even though education is a key element which can be deployed in fostering climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, there is a paucity of events where a special focus to education is given. In order to fill in this gap, the International Symposium on Climate Change and the Role of Education is being organised by Bishop Grosseteste University (UK), the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and the International Climate Change Information Programme. 

This symposium is aimed at those working in, or concerned with, education and climate change. It provides an opportunity to showcase projects, approaches and activities that investigate or utilise education as a means to mitigate or adapt to climate change. The conference also highlights the pedagogical approach museums and galleries utilize in discussing science, which arguably happens more than in classrooms.

Video of Workshop: Museums Collaborating around Climate Change. Australian Museum, Sydney, 20 July 2017.

The 2017 Museums & Climate Change Network workshop is published below:

The aim of the July 2017 workshop at the Australian Museum is to establish effective ways for museums around the world to collaborate on engaging hearts and minds, creating climate-active citizens, and influencing policy around climate change.  Museums and Climate Change Network members were invited.

This was a participatory, roll-your-sleeves-up workshop. The day had plenty of time for small group work directed at sharing and growing ideas and establishing clear steps forward. Numbers were kept low to keep the discussion moving.

There were presentations from several local and international speakers, including Miranda Massie, Director of The Climate Museum, New York.

Session One:

Session Two:

Jay Sterling Gregg, a senior researcher and lecturer at the Technical University of Denmark in the Climate Change and Sustainable Development program, created Climagination as a platform for engaging people in the climate issue by inspiring them to get in touch with their imagination and creativity. The ultimate goal is to create a climate museum in Copenhagen.
