Museums from all over Europe are invited to network, learn and get inspired at NEMO's 27th European Museum Conference from 7-10 November 2019 in Tartu, Estonia. The conference will focus on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, specifically on how museums contribute to the sustainable development of cities and communities and how they - as strong institutions, can support peace and justice in a more imbalanced world. NEMO wants to showcase how museums already are contributing, and can contribute, to a better and brighter future.
Within the larger agenda of creating a better and brighter future, NEMO has decided to put a certain focus on Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities and Goal 16: Peace, justice and strong institutions. Together the participants will explore how museums contribute to the sustainable development of cities and communities and how they - as strong institutions, can support peace and justice in a more imbalanced world. NEMO will not only demonstrate how museums and the sector at large are capable of contributing to sustainable development, but also share good practice examples of museums that already make a difference in their communities and contribute to an equal and fair world.
By inspiring museums and other cultural institutions to step it up and dare to take action, NEMO wants to show that the museum community is an excellent key player in achieving the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The conference is organised with the support of the Estonian Museums Association and the Estonian National Museum.
