Climate Museum UK is a mobile and digital museum creatively stirring and collecting responses to the Climate and Ecological Emergency.
A team of creative people based in the UK, passionate about the planet, we produce and gather art, objects, ideas, games and books, and then use these to activate people. These activations help people to play, make, think and talk about the Earth crisis and to open their imaginations to possible futures.
NOTE: During the Covid-19 crisis the activities described below are limited, and we’re focusing on digital projects.
Activation for public and learning audiences: As team members, we have collections of artworks, games, curious objects, books and activities. Most collections are in London but the team is growing all the time, extending reach across England. We use these collections to run activities in all kinds of venues. We’re currently offering some online workshops for people in Lewisham.
Activation for professionals and teams: We run half-day or full day workshops for teams in cultural, educational, business or campaign organisations, including as part of conferences. These help teams explore the emergency and plan action with your communities. We can also offer longer, bespoke projects to help you develop public engagement or learning resources on climate and ecology.
Digital museum: We’re developing a digital presence, of collections of climate art and information, including lots of resources on Pinterest. We run social campaigns and participatory collecting projects such as Everyday Ecocide and Extreme Weather Stories.

“Museums can be outside, inside, a state of mind, a movement or a feeling. I like Climate Museum UK and Cateran Eco Museum for pointing the way to a different way of looking and seeing.” Jenny White, British Council
