We’re delighted to confirm that WMMD is taking part in a national campaign empowering museums to take action again climate change. ‘Roots and Branches’ is a collaboration between The Carbon Literacy Project, Museum Development England and Manchester Museum, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. It aims to train and certify 1,500 people from 300 museums as Carbon Literate over the next two years and give an opportunity for museums to converse, experiment, and test new ideas for a more sustainable future.
How can you get involved?
- You can attend one of WMMD’s three Carbon Literacy courses. The first will be held on 1 November (details tbc), with two further courses over the duration of the project
- You can roll out Carbon Literacy training to your own workforce with free support from Museum Development and the Carbon Literacy Project
- You can join the Roots and Branches national social media campaign #MuseumCarbonStories (9 August – 12 November)
