Environmental Sustainability in Archives. What Does It Mean and What Can You Do?

Climate and the environment can seem like an area where there is simultaneously too much and too little information. The carbon jargon can seem impenetrable and confusing.

This interactive and participatory session will explain clearly what the issues are and what environmental sustainability is in relation to archives and the care of collections.

We will discuss the terms and exactly what they mean for you and your work. We will go through short term and long term actions that you can take to reduce the impact of your work on the climate and the environment.

By the end of the session you will have amassed hints and tips to put into action and the resources needed to do this effectively.

Wednesday 26th January, 10.00 to 11.45 GMT for the Archives and Records Association. £10 members, £20 non-members. Register here
