Museum 2 You is a community environmental education program that provides display material to enable mini exhibition to be delivered across NSW. Museum 2 You integrates information on sustainability, climate change and biodiversity into one education display and resource module.

This is the first blog post for the new Museum 2 You project.  I'm really excited to get started on this project and share my passion for the environmental and education. The first version of the Museum 2 You website went live in June 2011 and has useful information on sustainability, climate change and biodiversity.

At the beginning of June we also started an online survey so you can have your say on what information and content goes into the project. If you would like some input into the development of the project please fill out this survey.

Background

The Australian Museum funded by the NSW Environmental Trust is developing a community environmental education program. Museum 2 You is designed for community groups and organisation; including councils, libraries, regional museums and environmental education groups which in turn can use the displays for events and the wider community. Key components of the Museum 2 You (M2U) project are:

  • Display modules with content that focuses on sustainability, climate change and biodiversity.
  • Museum 2 You website and social media sites
  • Series of video conferences designed support staff and inform the general community. 

To help us create the best program please let me know what you're interested in.
I look forward to finding out what you want.
