Towards Net Zero Carbon

Deadline: Thursday 9 December 2021

As part of our 2018-2022 regional Museum Development activity plan, funded by Arts Council England, SHARE Museums East is supporting museums to review and assess their carbon emissions and plan their carbon reduction pathway.  The SHARE Towards Net Zero Carbon grants are available to help museums with this important area of Environmental Responsibility.

Museums can apply for a grant up to a maximum of £1200.

Examples of activities for which the grant can be used, include:

  • Energy Monitoring equipment
  • Low energy lighting equipment
  • Payment of an expert or consultant to help develop your carbon reduction pathway

If you are unsure if what you are applying for is eligible for a grant please speak to your MDO or with Kathy Moore, SHARE Project Officer.

This year we are encouraging museums to think about how their work supports the Creative Case for Diversity.  It might not be applicable to your project, but if you are doing any of the following, please highlight it in your application:

–  Research into collections that reveal untold stories of people or communities under-represented in your museum

–  Improving documentation to tell these stories or update interpretations

–  Including or updating exhibition labels or text so that these stories are available for your visitors to read

–  Working with community groups to identify and interpret collections that you have little information for
