The Coalition strives to provide the museum community with facilitated access to the latest news, upcoming events, and useful resources towards a more ecologically-aware sector. 

The following is a selection of content and knowledge created and shared by colleagues around the world as well as institutions and museum associations. We are constantly building a database of resources useful for addressing the questions arising from museums and climate change and sustainability.
