The Sustainability Excellence Awards (SEA)
The Sustainability Excellence Awards is a signature program of the Environment and Climate Network that educates, facilitates, and encourages green practices in museums. Started in 2014, the award recognizes sustainability efforts in facilities, programming, and exhibits in both large and small institutions. The Environment and Climate Network views the award as an opportunity to share sustainability stories and encourage museums to develop and educate visitors about green practices. SEA winners are honored at the AAM Annual Meeting and MuseumExpo. Winners also receive a gift donated on their behalf to the “Adopt an Acre of the Northern Rockies” program from the Nature Conservancy.
The submission deadline has been extended to February 18, 2019.
