Highland Museums Carbon Forum Project

There is growing recognition that the fossil fuel we use in our daily lives is making a significant contribution to manmade climate change. In addition, the fossil fuels we use to heat and power our lives, are running out. Not any time soon but they are running out. And as they become harder to find so the price increases.

Highland Museum Forum (supported by Highland Council and HI-Arts) were delighted to be awarded AmbITion Scotland funding to develop a digital resource to help measure and communicate carbon emissions. Running over the spring 2013, this project will help 12 independently run highland museums to identify how they can reduce their day to day carbon emissions which will also help reduce venue running costs.
