In June, 2022 a cohort of ten Boston Cultural Institutions will be the first participants to graduate from the Boston Green Ribbon Commission’s Collaborative Climate Action Planning program.
Starting last spring, a diverse group of Boston’s cultural institutions began a year-long process to develop a Climate Action Plan for their institution. As part of the program each organization will create their organizational road map for carbon mitigation, climate resilience, and climate justice that is consistent with the goals of the City of Boston.
As culture creators, custodians, and influencers in Boston, the group of theater, museum, history, and nature-based organizations was ideal for the pilot program. The participants are in the position to both lead on climate action and to share their efforts with their expansive audiences – shifting from individual action to the sector-wide collective impact and collaboration that is paramount to addressing the climate crisis.
Below is the list of participating institutions in the 2022 cohort. Two 2023 cohorts are currently forming (one for cultural institutions and one for higher educational institutions), and will launch in June of 2022.
