Reinventing sustainability

Reinventing sustainability

Sustainable development will be high in political and media agenda with the Rio+20 Conference coming up in June 2012. This is a wonderful opportunity for our institutions not only to reinforce public awareness of environmental issues but also to reinvent the way we work.

To promote sustainable development we first have to model good practices ourselves. But how can we adapt our buildings to reduce our environmental impact? How can sustainable development perspectives transform the way we are working inside our institutions? How could we address sustainable development issues in our programmes? The Nature Group will try to start answering those questions, and more, thanks to keynote lectures, case studies, discussion and a workshop.

The session is dedicated to directors, science communicators, designers, architects, explainers, and managers.

This is the only workshop taking place in the Gardens of the Natural History Museum in Toulouse, 30 May 2012.
