About the project

Image slide of a large tree with roots and branchesRoots and Branches is a collaboration between The Carbon Literacy Project, Museum Development England and Manchester Museum, supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. It aims to train and certify 1,500 people from 300 museums as Carbon Literate over the next two years and give an opportunity for museums to discuss, experiment, and test new ideas for a more sustainable future. 

Our involvement with this project is a continuation of our work to support museums to reduce their carbon footprint, having invested over £100,000 since 2012 in the region to support museums to do this. We believe that museum and heritage organisations are uniquely placed to raise awareness of climate change through their collections and spaces. They are part of the collective global effort in combatting climate change. 

Keep an eye on our training pages for information about upcoming Carbon Literacy sessions.
