The Europeana Initiative’s Climate Action Community recently ran a series of workshops which explored climate action, better digital information management practice and more. The aim of the workshop series was to explore key topics, share best practices and discuss the role of digital cultural heritage in the fight against climate change.

An abstract is now published on Europeana Pro website, retracing the three workshops to showcase learnings and thoughts on sustainability for culture, climate action and digital management.

Furthermore, the links to the webinars’ recordings are now avaiable, along with the four main takeaways on the series:

  • Collaborative action
  • Awareness and education
  • Balancing priorities
  • Digital transformation

Since EUreka3D is committed to raise awareness on the matter of sustainability and climate action in the cultural heritage sector, we would like to encourage anyone involved in any way in the digital preservation or management of digital content in your organisation to  contribute to sector wide understanding by taking the Community’s Environmental Sustainability practice survey, by sharing your ideas, experience and challenges. The survey will be open until Wednesday, 13 of September 2023.

More information about the workshops can be found at this link.
