Museums and Social Responsibility – Values revisited

Share

Within the framework of Germany’s presidency of the Council of the European Union, NEMO and the German Museums Association are co-organising the online conference Museums and Social Responsibility – Values revisited from 17-18 September 2020.

The conference will focus on what social responsibility means for museums. Through their daily work, museums make a significant contribution to social responsibility by dealing with questions that are connected to social cohesion, social inclusion and social diversity. From 17-18 September, we will discuss what museums can do, what is needed, and what still is missing to make an impact on our European society. We want to redefine and clarify the field for the museum landscape.
