A Meeting Place: Online Global Discussions for Museum and Gallery Professionals
"From an unsustainable past to a sustainable future"

Tuesday 23 March, 4-5pm UK GMT (Greenwich Meantime)

Join British Council in partnership with ICOM UK and Museums Association for the final session of our live online conversations for leading museum and gallery professionals.

We close the series with "From an unsustainable past to a sustainable future"

This event is hosted by Henry McGhie, Founder, Curating Tomorrow, who will be in conversation with Julie Decker, Director/CEO, Anchorage Museum, Alaska; Karin Weil González, Anthropologist and Heritage Officer, Wetlands Research Centre Río Cruces, Universidad Austral de Chile; Dr. Susanne Nawrath, Scientific Exhibition Manager, Klimahaus® Bremerhaven 8° Ost; and Elena Trimarchi, Learning and Engagement Manager, David Livingstone Birthplace, Blantyre, Scotland.

This discussion will be followed by an audience Q and A.

Together, the panellists will explore sustainable development ideas and how they can be used to 'build back better'. We will explore how we balance the need to get back on our feet, and the need to transform. We will draw on global perspectives and experience, to ensure that we don't end up back at square one, and that we work towards a better future where risks are understood, managed, and mitigated. We will explore how Agenda 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals can be used as a blueprint for this reconstruction, working to ensure that no community, and no museum, is 'left behind'.


This session will have Closed Captioning and a British Sign Language interpreter. The session will also be recorded and a full transcript available following the event.

It will also be auto translated in Spanish via Streamtext.
