Reims, France. Towards a global environmental approach in the city museums.
An ambitious sustainable transformation plan of the five city museums was rolled out over 2016-2025 including structural work on the museums’ infrastructure and collections but also awareness–raising activities such as artistic commissions and temporary exhibitions.
In 2022, the Reims City Museums initiated a global environmental approach based on a cultural season entitled “Museums go green”. The implementation of this season has demonstrated the real interest of the museums’ teams in sustainability, beyond the different professions and generations, with the development of an internal dynamic. The dynamic initiated by the season has made it possible to set in motion a longer-term approach, giving meaning to the environmental transition roadmap set for the museums over the next few years.
