Sustaining Museums for Future Climates

2024 Annual Conference

In so many areas of our regular life the climates are changing from what was usual in the past. In the museum world, sustainability and shifts in climates are happening too, and encompass a broad range of topics and impacts.

Of course, museums think about sustainability regarding their environmental impact, but also in terms of financial sustainability, the changing climate of visitor and donor behavior, sustaining and supporting the workforce, the future of grant and foundation support, shifting volunteer demographics, changing trends in tourism, and more – all while sustaining and staying true to their mission.

Museums across Ohio are tackling the many facets of sustainability so they can remain strong, vibrant, and essential community cornerstones no matter what future climates bring.

Join us in Sandusky, April 13-15 as we explore these topics and more at the 2024 Ohio Museums Association’s Annual Conference: Sustaining Museums for Future Climates.
