Resilience & Sustainability workshop.

Developing Resilience and Environmental Sustainability in the Cultural Sector

Come and Join us at Lapworth Museum for an interactive workshop discussing how to build resilience and environmental sustainability into your organisation. The workshop will introduce the Museums’ Environmental Framework, which is a new tool helping you to map your organisation’s current environmental practice and scope your ambition for taking further action. We will share examples of best practice and practical actions you can take. This workshop will be especially beneficial for smaller cultural and heritage organisations and Museums – exploring how to prioritise and take action if you have a small staff team and use volunteers. In the workshop we will introduce dimensions of the Museum Framework.

Catherine Botterill, Creative Green Lead at Julie’s Bicycle will be facilitating the workshop. Julie’s Bicycle is a London based charity that supports the creative community to act on climate change and environmental sustainability. We believe that the creative community is uniquely placed to transform the conversation around climate change and translate it into action.

José Forrest-Tennant, Development & Sustainability Manager at Lapworth Museum, will be on-hand to discuss current development of the Museum’s creative green certification.

There is an expectation that all participants will contribute to the workshop content through sharing their models of working and experiences within their own museums and heritage attractions.
