Survey: Contemporary art museums and the SDGs

Take part in a survey on how contemporary art museums are acting to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), conducted by the International Committee for Museums and Collections of Modern Art (CIMAM).

The survey will inform the report Climate, Social and Economic Sustainability: How Modern and Contemporary Art Museums are Acting to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. A report by CIMAM.

CIMAM's survey will provide an overview of the status and progress of modern and contemporary art museums and cultural institutions towards achieving the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations SDGs. The report will link the SDGs with the museum's core values and allows CIMAM to broaden its approach in promoting sustainable practices in museums' social and economic fields to its members.

By promoting innovative solutions, amplifying the voices of marginalised groups, and being a leading educational institution, museums will achieve including all members of society in the fight against climate change.

Who can contribute?

Directors of museums, heads of programmes, curators, sustainability curators, exhibition managers, and other professionals of modern and contemporary art museums, collections, institutions, as well as independent curators.

While answers will be anonymised in the report, everyone who filled in the survey will be listed as a respondent.

This report is an initiative of the CIMAM Sustainability and Ecology in Museum Practice working group.
