Event description
Join us for four sessions focusing on the past, present and future of sustainability in the archives sector.

About this event

This event will take place over two days (Monday 8 November 10:00-12:30 and Wednesday 10 November 10:00-12:30) and we encourage participation on both days.

Join us for an opportunity to be part of the sustainability conversation and reflect on climate change as COP26, the world's most important climate change conference, takes place this November in Glasgow.

While this event is aimed at archives and conservation professionals, anyone with an interest in supporting environmental sustainability can join us to learn from specialists and gain new perspectives and advice. Come hear about the past, present and future of environmental sustainability in the archives sector, share your ideas for change and take away tools to create positive changes in your organisation.

The National Archives is a member of the Climate Heritage Network and as the official archive of the UK government we are responsible for preserving the nation’s heritage. We recognise the importance of climate and environmental stability for safeguarding our collections, and for the overall security of communities, cultural heritage and ecosystems across the world.
