Synopsis The Spring Seminar of ICOM Austria was dedicated to sustainability. It is one of the biggest challenges that societies in the world have to face today. Societies have to adapt to new developments, while respecting the natural limits. The transition to a sustainable society also requires new thinking and acting. In this process, museums can play a key role and promote sustainable development, as well as to serve as laboratories for "best practices" examples. Contemporary museums must take a strong position and ensure that their voice is heard in this context. ICOM Austria invited Maurice Davies as keynote speaker of the seminar. Former Deputy-Director of the Museums Association (United Kingdom), Maurice Davies has, since 2007, invited museum professionals to consider this question. This resulted in a discussion paper entitled Sustainability and Museums, and the organisation of workshops throughout the UK, to raise awareness to sustainability among museum professionals. In his paper, Maurice Davies reports on what has been done by the Museums Association on the subject and presents the results achieved in the last years.
Primary descriptors sustainability.
