Sustainable Museums, Sustainable Futures
In September, professionals from 30 different museums joined forces to help create a sustainable future. They represented the first cohort of NISE Network’s Sustainability Fellowship program, which will include over 90 organizations in 2019-2020. This program is a key part of the Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability in Science and Technology Museums initiative, which provides professional development, educational materials, and other resources to help museums integrate sustainability into their public engagement work, operations, and community partnerships.
In 2020, we’ll be offering an online professional development series focused on sustainability, which is open to all NISE Network partners. In addition, we’ll be offering a new set of public programs, which will be available as digital downloads just in time for Earth Day 2020 programming.
The Rob and Melani Walton Sustainability in Science and Technology Museums program is supported through funding from the Rob and Melani Walton Foundation.
