ABTEM Seminar – Going Green: Carbon Reduction Challenges for Transport Collections & Museums

4th October 2023 

The Association of British Transport & Engineering Museums (ABTEM) 2023 annual seminar, to be held on the 4th October, focusses on how transport collections are facing the challenge of climate change and sustainability and how carbon reduction and environmental impacts are being tackled by museums large and small.

The emphasis of the day will be on best practice solutions that can inspire curators, volunteers and others to help address climate change and embed environmental sustainability into their operation and work. 

The morning session of the seminar will be held at the London Transport Museum Depot at Acton in London followed by an afternoon walk and talk session at the nearby London Museum of Water & Steam at Kew based around the theme of’ Sustainable Steam and Sustainable Communities’.
