International Summer School EnviMat School

The School will combine understanding of the impact of pollution and climate change with risk assessment and management on coastal archaeological remains, monumental complexes and cultural landscapes, with main focus on measures of protection to natural and anthropogenic risks (floods, sea level rise, fires, volcanic activity, earthquakes and air pollution). Strategies of preparedness, in response to emergency and recovery will be discussed.

Main topics are:

  • Long term changes in climate and air pollution and their effects on  coastal archaeological sites and cultural landscapes;

  • Vulnerability of Cultural Heritage and landscapes;

  • Deterioration processes and diagnosis;

  • Moisture and salts in heritage structures;

  • Adaptation strategies for coastal archaeological sites.

Harvard Summer School MUSE S-132 Social Relevance: Environmental Sustainability in Museums

The public discussion of the environment and climate change is an important opportunity for museums to connect more deeply with their communities. It is also an opportunity to protect and strengthen these institutions. This course surveys the practical aspects of interpretation and public programming, operational changes, building construction, and community engagement to examine how changes in museum work can deepen museums' connections to their communities and increase museums' charitable value. The course covers the evolution of sustainability in museums over the last fifteen years. Topics include human behavior (the challenge of change, whether in daily practice or major projects, and how museums are so well-suited to support staff, visitors, and communities in making change); mitigation (why and how museums and communities are reducing their negative effects on the environment, and what difference can it make to the environment, the climate, and to social and financial stability); and resilience (why and how museums are creatively helping their communities become more resilient in the face of a changing climate and increased impacts from storm events; how museums can share with the public the scientific and social discoveries enabling widespread change).

The Green Museum: Introduction to Environmental Sustainability in Museums On-line Course

Explore how the realities and principles of environmental sustainability can be applied to museum situations. The course includes discussions about the philosophy of going green, and how it affects institutional policy and planning. Students will be required to keep a journal, collect photographs, and to visit two museums -- one not your own. Upon completing this course, students will be able to:

  1. apply principles of environmental-sustainability to work and personal decisions; 

  2. identify and test facts, understand trade-offs, and recognize mission-effects related to environmental sustainability when they make choices at their museums for programming, and operational projects;

  3. encourage others to adopt sustainable practice within a museum context; and support others in bringing about change in an institution and in the field.
