Since 2006, the California Association of Museums (CAM) has been taking leadership and creating dialogue around environmental sustainability through its Green Museums Initiative. The Green Museum Accord was one of its first activities and served as inspiration to American Alliance of Museums’ (AAM) professional network on environmental sustainability.
Now in 2013, CAM and AAM have teamed up to take the Green Museums Accord national and encourage even greater participation in the effort to make museums and communities “green”.
