Help support development of resources to support museums support communities

One of the ways I work with museums is by developing guides that support them to connect their work with real-world agendas. This has the benefit of helping the agendas happen, and also helps museums be more relevant and have a clearer purpose. I aim to make these guides free, as it helps museums in developing countries or those with fewer resources to make use of them. [ 196 more words ]

However, the information doesn't only relate to museums so should be useful for others too.

Museums, coronavirus, climate change: understand the risks landscape

This is the second in a series of posts on museums and disaster risk reduction and preparedness: not just of museums themselves, but of broader society. As I said in the last post, 'the future' is not something we can just leave to chance, nor do we have to. Knowing the risks around, being prepared for them - whether preventing them (mitigation) or adapting to them (adaptation, in climate change language) - is a fundamental part of sustainability.

Museums, coronavirus, climate change: looking forwards, not backwards

I thought I'd write something on some ideas I've been thinking about, and how they relate to museums, coronavirus and climate change. This will be a series of posts on museums and disaster risk reduction and preparedness: not just of museums themselves, but of broader society. The backdrop is that I've been very inspired thinking about how 'the future' happens. Is it something we just go along with and wait and see what comes along, or is it something we make and design?

Developing our '2020 vision' to create the future through museums

Heritage Futures exhibition at Manchester Museum, copyright Paul Cliff One of the things I like to do to shift thinking or create new perspectives is to take ideas from one context and apply them to another. This works even better when you can make some kind of connection between the two contexts, even if it's an abstract or left-field connection. [ 435 more words ]

This blog post is intended to help museum workers, everywhere, understand how they in turn can help people understand the links between the Australian bush fires and climate change, and how they can support constructive climate change education, awareness and action. The Australian bushfires are, quite rightly, headline global news. They are extremely savage and serious. They are a human tragedy. [ 1,492 more word ]

Museums can contribute to this transformation, addressing the social and environmental problems that threaten our world. Museums can help society come out of the crisis stronger – more resilient, better prepared, and in a world with less risks. But what template should we use? This short presentation will show how the Sustainable Development Goals are this template, and show how museums can best contribute to society’s efforts to ‘build back better’. #BeMuseumerVirtual conference #MuseumsandCovid19 🔎 Henry McGhie has a background as an ecologist, and he worked as a curator and senior manager in museums for nearly two decades, focused on sustainability and partnerships.
