We are posting this to share with you an email we received today:
I am writing to share with you a new video series, Taking Action on Climate Change, created by the Alberta Museums Association, the Coalition of Museums for Climate Justice and Shadow Light Productions. The videos address ways in which museum staff and museum visitors can engage in climate change action. They have been designed to be integrated into museum exhibition spaces and online platforms as a free educational tool. These videos are also intended to mobilize the museum sector to think differently about their role in climate change awareness and community resiliency, and to take action.
This video series contains practical examples of how individuals can take proactive action to address climate issues. These videos are hopeful and engaging, and demonstrate not only what museums are doing to mitigate their carbon footprints, but also how individuals and other institutions can, by making sustainable choices, affect real change to address this global problem. As we all know, museums are key civic resources in promoting public conversations about our collective well-being. These videos are ready for use in your programming about climate change.
The videos are designed as five standalone video shorts, which can be used independently, or as one longer piece that integrates all five. All of these are available for free download on the Vimeo page (link below). Also, the video we released last spring (intended for internal use by museums for their staff/volunteers) is available on this Vimeo page too.
Please See: Taking Action on Climate Change Video Series; Vimeo page (downloadable)
I hope that you will share these videos with your boards of directors, your programmers, all your staff, your volunteers, your visitors, and your professional networks, as well as your family and friends.
All the best,
