Internationaler Museumstag 2023
International Museum Day 2023 to focus on #sustainability and well-being
#Museums are key contributors to the well-being and to the sustainable development of our communities. As trusted institutions and important threads in our shared social fabric, they are uniquely placed to create a cascading effect to foster positive change. There are many ways in which museums can contribute to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals: from supporting #climateaction and fostering #inclusivity, to tackling social isolation and improving #mentalhealth.
In 2023, we will focus on:
Goal 3 Global Health and Well-being:
Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, in particular concerning mental health and social isolation.
Goal 13 Climate Action:
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts, adopting low-carbon practices in the Global North and mitigation strategies in the Global South.
Goal 15 Life on Land:
Protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, amplifying the voices of indigenous leaders and raising awareness on the loss of biodiversity.
On May 18th, we encourage all members of the civil society to come together and realise the full transformative potential that museums have for #SustainableDevelopment and well-being!
