Free NEMO Webinar - Museums and Sustainable Development Goals

2019-11-18

On 27 November 2019 at 11:00 CET Henry McGhie, Curating Tomorrow, will facilitate a webinar that explores the background of SDGs and explains how museums can and should connect to them.

If you want to learn how the SDGs museums can use the SDGs to articulate their value to society, and to make a positive difference, on their own and with partners, register to the free webinar "Using the Sustainable Development Goals in Museums".  

The webinar draws on a recent guide that Henry McGhie has put together for museums on the SDGs. In particular, Herny McGhie's webinar will explore the background of the SDGs and what they aim to achieve; why all museums should connect with them; the benefits of doing so; and the main ways they can incorporate the SDGs into their planning, activity and reporting, across all areas of their activity. This webinar should be of relevance to museums workers anywhere, and in museums of any kind.

>> Register to the free webinar (the webinar is limited to 100 participants on first come first serve basis) Registration will be closed on 24th November 2019.

Henry McGhie has set up Curating Tomorrow to help museums and their partners enhance their contributions to creating a sustainable future. He has recently written a guide for museums on how to get started with the SDGs. Henry has had a lifelong passion for nature, and worked in museums for nearly two decades, with an interest in using museums 'to the max'. He has helped broker partnerships between researchers, museums and policy workers, including with the United Nations. He is a member of the Sustainability Working Group established by ICOM in 2018, the IUCN Commission on Education and Communication, and the Education, Communication and Outreach Stakeholders recognised by UNFCCC. He was involved in getting museums recognised as key sites for climate change education and action in the Workplan for the Paris Climate Change Agreement in 2018. He is the author and editor of three books on climate change communication, and the history of ornithology.
