Question:

Has your museum been making strides towards greener practices and infrastructure?    Are you proud of any sustainability measures in recent exhibits?    Have you been engaging the public in topics like waste, water, energy, food, green space, consumer habits, and more? You should consider applying for a 2017 Sustainability Excellence Award!

The Sustainability Excellence Award is a PIC Green signature program that educates, facilitates, and encourages green practices in museums. Started in 2014, the award recognizes sustainability efforts in facilities, programming, and exhibits in both large and small institutions. PIC Green views the award as an opportunity to share sustainability stories and encourage museums to develop and educate visitors about green practices. SEA winners are honored at the AAM Annual Meeting and MuseumExpo and their application materials are shared in the "Awards Issue" of Museum Magazine. The application is available now. Completed entries will be accepted through February 7th. If you have any questions, please email aampicgreen@gmail.com.
