Free guide: How can museums support the Sustainable Development Goals?

I’m very happy to announce a guide I’ve put together for museums, galleries, the cultural sector and their partners on the Sustainable Development Goals. These are the most ambitious programme ever, seeking to put the world on a path to a sustainable future by 2030. Museums have a key role to play in this. The guide is intended to help empower museums (small, large and of any kind, anywhere), museum workers, museum networks and their partners to contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs for short). I’ve tried to make it very, very easy for museums to understand their place in the SDGs, and how they can take them up in their work.

You can download the guide here:

And, if you are ready to really start using the SDGs and targets to plan and deliver sustainable development action in concrete and impactful ways, you can download this guide:

These Guides are provided free, to help support take-up, but that does not mean they are free to produce. You can show your appreciation, and support the work of Curating Tomorrow by making a donation, whatever sum you like, to help support the development of further resources. All donations are gratefully received (thanks).

I have set up Curating Tomorrow as a new business. I know that lots of people, organisations and networks care about the communities they are based in, broader social issues and the natural environment. Curating Tomorrow takes museum-based skills of curating, and applies them to the wider world. It is about helping people and organisations move farther, faster, together to build a better world.

  1. Hello, I am the director of Panama city Museum. I consider being really important for societies to incorporate and promote these goals to reach sustainability in our countries. Our museum is an open museum, with multiples exhibitions around the city. At the core of every project is at least one of the SDGs. For example, in May we have inaugurated one exhibition about the history of Panama´s urbanism, and we are working with SDG 4,6,8,9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 15. I was happy to read your post and see that we are not the only ones. If you want to know more about our project, please enter the following link


    1. Hi I hope you are going on well with your work. I’ve done another couple of guides linked to the SDGs, one on disaster risk reduction and museums, and another on human rights. I’d be interested to hear how your work is going. All the best Henry
