Leading up to NEMO’s European Museum Conference, they invited Jasper Visser, Strategy Consultant at the Museum of the Future and VISSCH+STAM, to give an introduction to the SDGs and offer some hands-on tips on how museums can incorporate these into their work. NEMO recorded the webinar to make it, and its important message, as accessible as possible.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which include zero hunger, reduced inequality, and climate action, can only be achieved if the world comes together and everyone takes action. Museums – and other cultural partners – are starting to act. In this webinar, we will explore the SDGs and learn from museums that are already taking action about how everyone can contribute to the global goals. We will also discover that the SDGs are an opportunity both for the world and for museums that wish to have a real impact in their communities and on the society they are part of.
Join us at NEMO’s European Museum Conference 2019 from 7-10 November 2019 in Tartu, Estonia, to explore how museums can contribute to achieving the UN’s SDGs further.
