Environmental sustainability offers important pathways for strengthening your organization and improving its relevance within the community. This webinar explores how it’s possible to align your mission and environmental goals for the benefit of your organization.
Guest speaker Sarah Sutton of Sustainable Museums begins the webinar by discussing the relationship between environmental sustainability and history museums and historic sites, and highlights the basic alignments that create positive financial and social returns. She then discusses energy audits and how to get one – hopefully for free, and then moves on to identifying environmental practices that support historic interpretation and museum operations.
Sarah also discusses creating a strategy for increased environmental sustainability that aligns with your goals and strategic plan from buildings and landscapes, to community presence.
There is no singular path to a green future; it is entirely tied to the mission and opportunities of your organization. Let’s see what great opportunities we can discover for your site!
This webinar is part of the StEPs Lab series of online continuing education offered to both StEPs program participants and all others interested in environmental sustainability for historic structures. Applying what you learn in a Lab to your policies and practices helps your organization make meaningful progress. The more progress you make, the more boxes you can check off in the StEPs workbook. The more boxes you check off, the more Bronze, Silver, and Gold certificates your organization earns. And that translates into more credibility, more support, and an organization that is a valuable asset to its community for many more years to come.
