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.

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.
