The Sustainability Excellence Award (SEA)

The Alliance and PIC Green invite you to submit your museum as a model for environmental sustainability for the 2015 AAM Annual Meeting in Atlanta (April 26–29). The purpose of this recognition program is to educate, facilitate and encourage green practice and to acknowledge and celebrate leaders in environmental sustainability.

This year we hope to receive a larger number of entries by small institutions. We want to show that sustainable practice does not have to be LEED-certified to have lasting consequences for our planet.

SEA winners will be celebrated at the Annual Meeting, in Aviso and Museum magazine.
