Exhibitions Going Green Survey 2018 Ten Years On

Exhibitions – Going Green Survey 2018 – Ten Years On

On behalf of Sustainable Exhibitions for Museums (SEFM), you are invited to complete the on-line Exhibitions – Going Green Survey 2018 – Ten Years Onthrough the following link 

The survey is active through to 31 July 2019.

SEFM is a UK-based informal network of museum and gallery professionals who want to promote and encourage sustainability in all we do in this field, with a particular focus on the production and staging of exhibitions. 

We are looking for survey responses from museums or galleries of any kind – multiple sites may want to submit by each major site. We wish to once again review our industry to assess how environmentally sustainable or ‘green’ our work practices and institutions are, and how our approaches to exhibitions have changed in the last ten years. 
To see the results summary of the first survey issued in 2008 follow the following link to the report pdf: 
In order to prepare and gather your information to complete this ten years on survey you can preview the survey first in its entirety by downloading the pdf at this link – and then start the survey when you are ready 

This 2018 Survey is based on the original 2008 Survey so we can analyse ‘like for like’. We recognize though we may have advanced quite some way since then and that the questions/topics may have been overtaken by progress. 

Most questions  are ‘green’ and a few new ones ‘financial’ as we are taking this opportunity to see how tight budgets have affected exhibition programming and museum operations – perhaps with green benefits.
