What role do museums have in addressing the Climate Crisis?

Welcome to Eco Activist Journeys. My name is Léa and I am your show host. Today I invite you to join me in a discussion with Kate Wilcox, a museums professional and postgraduate museums studies student at the University of St Andrews. We discuss the topic of museums in the climate crisis, how to communicate climate change, what we can do about climate anxiety, and how we can drive societal changes from different sectors in society. I really learned a lot through this discussion about how museums can and have to play a role in these societal shifts and Kate also shared some really interesting case studies of museums and galleries that communicate climate change and use art for the planet so I hope you will tune in for the journey …. Thank you, Kate, for your time and work.
