The Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) has established the ACM Climate Crisis & Resiliency Task Force to help the association rapidly respond to the environmental, social, economic, and humanitarian challenges affecting our institutions, communities, and core audiences worldwide. ACM is working to better understand how to support our members and member museums to contribute quickly and positively toward climate education, advocacy, adaptations, and mitigations.
The Climate Crisis & Resiliency Task Force, currently composed of ACM board members from around the world, kicked off its work at InterActivity 2019 in May 2019. The ACM Board of Directors approved the ACM Climate Crisis & Resiliency Task Force Statement and Action Plan in September 2019.
In the coming months, the task force will grow to include representatives from partner museums, organizations, businesses, and at-large members from the children’s museum field, all with passion, expertise, and a keen interest in advancing ACM’s and member museums’ opportunities for cross-sector, collaborative, and scalable climate initiatives. The results of this work will be presented at InterActivity 2020.
