Museums' role in environmental sustainability in support of a healthy world for all
What is it about?
Missions narrow focus; visions broaden it. Museums have so much they could accomplish to improve conditions of the world. This paper examines how some institutions are using visions that go beyond traditional practice to help heal the world while also fulfilling their missions.
Why is it important?
Healing the world may seem outside of the scope of one or even many museums, yet it isn't. The examples here demonstrate how motivated practitioners, with the right partners and an expanding vision, have tackled or are tackling, significant, highly-complex issues with great results. We and our museums are capable of far more than we were trained to believe.
