The NEMO European Museum Conference 2023 “and… ACTION! Museums in the climate crisis” will take place from 19-21 November in Lahti, Finland. Join 200+ museum colleagues from all over Europe to explore how museums can take action for the climate and a sustainable future.   

As the sector stands at the brink of change, NEMO wants to inspire and offer guidance on how museums can be part of the solution and identify where they can contribute to climate action and sustainability. At the conference, we will draw on learnings from NEMO’s recent report to explore sustainability strategies, risk management as preventive measures and how to transform museums into futureproof and sustainable organisations.  

Join the NEMO European Museum Conference 2023 for inspirational keynote speeches, enlightening panel discussions and engaging workshops. In Lahti, the European Green Capital (2021), you can expect several occasions for networking with European colleagues, inspiring museum visits and opportunities to explore the local nature and culture. Let’s work together to build strong alliances to find collective strength to contribute to global action for climate.
