Museums of the FutureNow: Cultural Adaptation

For Creative Carbon Scotland. Venue: V&A, Dundee. 28th Sept 2022

Supercharging the Cultural Toolbox to address climate change : Scoping opportunities for climate action collaboration by Scottish cultural organisations. What role will cultural institutions play in our response to climate emergency/ adaptation?    

Scotland’s cultural organisations can and want to help with the transformation to a zero-carbon, climate-adapted Scotland. Collaboration enables organisations to enhance the individual steps they are taking on climate action, particularly through their programming, convening and influencing power. This event brought together group members, guest experts on using culture for climate action and national and local government representatives working on policy in these areas, with the aim of scoping out the benefits of coordination among cultural organisations in Scotland, the options for working together and with those working on climate change, and what the next steps are to put coordination into action. The Museum of the Future Now gave participants an opportunity to reimagining the role that cultural institutions might play in our response to climate emergency/ adaptation.
