Your thoughts: Environmentally Friendly Museums

Following from last week’s blog about sustainability and the British Museum’s brand new beekeeping club, we would love to hear your case studies, ideas and opinions on museums and the environment.

The environmental impact of running institutions both big and small is an important issue which is becoming more and more relevant.

ITP UK Partner Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums have an environmental policy, as do many museums throughout the UK and internationally. The Horniman Museum and Gardens even has a centre dedicated to environmental understanding, with the environment included in its mission and design – the building constructed with sustainable materials

If you have any thoughts to share on how your home institutions and cultures consider the environment and nature, and how your museums reflect this, please let us know!
