ABOUT OUR DIGITAL MUSEUM
Climate Museum UK doesn’t have a building, and our activities happen where our members live. We also do stuff online, and since March 2020, due to Covid-19 we’ve been focusing on events in Zoom, and using blogs and social media.

1. Extreme Weather Stories
A growing collection of experiences and stories about extreme weather, which is being worsened by climate breakdown.
2. Everyday Ecocide
3. Stories of Extraction
Our Activist Museum Award has allowed us to enquire into Digital Commons Collecting and the idea of Extractivism. We’re looking into how to put an #EcoLensOnThings – highlighting the climate and ecology stories behind art, history & science collections online. See this vision for digital engagement around climate.
4. Climate Music
We are growing a collection of music and songs about climate change and the environment. We’ve also held Climate Open Mic nights, and one of our members is thinking about climate sound art and Climate Museum UK radio.
