Small changes, big impact: sustainable environmental practice

As museums increasingly engage with the challenge of global climate change, not only has their role in raising awareness and communicating with their audiences through their programming gained traction, but they also continue to address concerns around internal factors and practices that make our museums successful and effective but may have traditionally come at a cost to our natural habitat. 

This workshop, presented by Ruža Leko from StudioSuss, will seek to explore some of the measures that have or can be taken across museum sites and how we can empower staff and contractors to make changes to daily practice to incorporate green practices, thus ensuring we minimise the impact of the museum’s core functions on our environment. 

Duration: 1.5 hours

Facilitator: Ruža Leko is co-founder and creative director of Studio Suss. She specialises in strategy, concept, and design, and asks the tough questions, while embracing clarity and eliminating the noise. She has extensive design experience in the science, art and education sectors. Prior to Studio Suss, Ruža worked as a lead designer at Science Gallery Dublin, designing over 20 exhibitions, numerous events and educational programmes.
