Miranda Massie on the power of museums against climate change

In this episode of Green Heritage Futures, we speak to Miranda Massie to find out more about her work and what she’s learnt through her experiences. We explore her path to founding the Climate Museum, the unique nature of culture that lends itself to understanding and coming to terms with central issues in climate change, and why museums are such powerful institutions in addressing the climate crisis.

Miranda is the Founder and Director of the Climate Museum, the first museum in the U.S. dedicated to the climate crisis. A former civil rights impact litigator, she left a career in social justice law in 2014 to start laying the groundwork for the Museum.

You can find Miranda on Twitter @mirandaksmassie. Find out more about the Climate Museum at their website or @ClimateMuseum. Find out more about Climate Speaks, the youth spoken word programme initiated by Climate Museum.
