6 sessions from May 24 to November 22, 2023

ICOM France is pleased to announce its new cycle of debates and discussions 2023 dedicated to the development of an ethical and sustainable model in museums

This cycle will take the form of 6 participative sessions on a digital platform from May to November 2023 organized with a consortium of 9 international partners bringing together professionals from Europe, the Middle East and Maghreb, North America and South America.

Cycle presentation

Aimed at museum professionals, each session will be organized from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. (CEST then CET) around a key theme:

Sustainable architecture and built heritage (May 24),

Mediation of sustainable development (June 7),

Societal issues of sustainable development (July 5),

Training and research (September 27),

Digital and sustainable development (October 18)

Emergency plans and reconstruction (November 22)


Organized as a participatory debate, each session will be introduced and moderated by one of the project’s partners and will feature the voices of 3 to 5 professionals presenting a concrete action carried out in their institution that actively and pragmatically contributes to the implementation of a proactive sustainable development policy.

Each speaker will have a short speaking time (about 5 minutes) in order to keep these exchanges spontaneous and direct, and to allow, after the preliminary interventions, a significant time for exchange, necessary to facilitate contact, questions and exchange of ideas.

Each session will be simultaneously translated into the 3 official languages of ICOM: English, Spanish and French; it will be recorded and available for re-broadcast on the YouTube channel of ICOM France and other means of communication of its partners.

The entire cycle will be published in a book to be released in early 2024.

This project is conceived with the financial support of ICOM, the University of Quebec – Trois Rivières and the Délégation générale de la langue française et des langues de France / Ministère de la Culture.
