What is the 2030 Action Plan on Sustainability?

Designed as a framework to be appropriated by ICOM national and international committees, the Action Plan provides the means for committees to take up the challenge of addressing the climate emergency and supporting sustainable development through knowledge sharing, networks,  commitment, and concrete action.

Each committee can adapt the template, to set out its ambitions, partnerships, actions, evaluation, communication and accountability as an actor in sustainable development. This online workshop is designed to accompany committees in this process.
