Sustainability Network

A cross-disciplinary network to encourage the take up of positive environmental practices in cultural heritage

We want this to be a practical Network providing you with solutions, case studies on good environmental practice, crowdsourcing of ideas to solve those knotty environmental questions, 'how to' advice, and a way to share and recycle materials and equipment.

Join the Network and tell us what you want the Icon Sustainability Network to do. Follow us on Twitter @icon_sn, Instagram @icon_sustainability, or contact us via email at [email protected].
