AGM Meeting Talk
Sustainability is something that conservators are inherently concerned with. However, applying environmental consciousness to our daily practice may seem complex, and with the numerous other considerations that conservators must take into account, sustainability can fall through the cracks. What exactly does sustainability mean in the context of conservation, and how can we take action to contribute to a more sustainable future?
In this talk, we will address issues of environmental sustainability in conservation – addressing what a green lab is and how we can start working toward greener practices. There are many things that we can already do to start practicing more sustainably, and this talk will provide an overview of current research and practical tips and actions.
