Conference 2018 - Cultivating Connections: Museums and the Environment

Museums are places of learning and sharing, inquiry and innovation, discussion and exploration, dialogue and debate. Cultural institutions embrace their roles as places where meaningful connections are made both between individuals and with the most pressing issues in society today.

The Alberta Museums Association's 2018 Conference will explore, consider, and celebrate the ways museums are moving towards greater engagement with environmental issues. Delegates will examine how collections, preservation, and research can benefit from approaches that consider sustainability, as well as how public programs, exhibitions, and partnerships that engage with environment can broaden the museum's impact. In a time of increased concern with environmental sustainability, museums are situated to encourage communities to examine how they interact with and care for the environment, while also demonstrating their own sustainable practices.

When museums ensure their activities support their surroundings - air, water, land, natural resources, flora, fauna, humans, and settlements -they can engage more deeply with the social and cultural impacts of the environment in their community and foster greater overall well-being for the community.
