Is Green the New Black? Environmental, Social and Economic Sustainability in Museums
What are the challenges for museums in responding to the United Nations Agenda for 2030 and Sustainable Developing Goals?
How do we assess development in different social, political, and economic contexts for museums around the world?

This webinar will share findings from the CIMAM 2022 survey among museums of modern and contemporary art worldwide on how museums operating in diverse cultural and socio-economic contexts respond to the 2030 Agenda.
Moderated by Louisa Buck, writer and broadcaster on contemporary art, the webinar brings together four sustainability experts invited to evaluate the survey findings.
Caitlin Southwick, founder and executive director of Ki Culture, will provide insight and conclusions from the survey on the social aspects of sustainability; Henry McGhie, founder of Curating Tomorrow, will share his assessments of progress being made toward environmental goals; and Martin Müller, professor in the Department of Geography and Sustainability at the University of Lausanne, will give his critical view on the evolution toward greener economies of the museums surveyed. Finally, Anthony Kiendl, director of the Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada's first passive museum, will discuss this pioneering environmental sustainability project.
