Sustainability means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the future generation's ability to meet their own needs.

Museums have a long term role in preservation and community engagement so they are already in the sustainability business!

Museums serve today's society while aiming to pass on their collections, knowledge and information into the future.

Nowadays museums are trying to think more explicitly about sustainability and are finding it helps them improve their working practice.

We try to build sustainability into our museum's aims and objectives and a sustainability policy has been formally adopted by our Museum Council.
