=== ABOUT ===

The conference will focus on what social responsibility means for museums. Through their daily work, museums make a significant contribution to social responsibility by dealing with questions that are connected to social cohesion, social inclusion and social diversity. From 17-18 September, we will discuss what museums can do, what is needed, and what still is missing to make an impact on our European society. We want to redefine and clarify the field for the museum landscape.

The detailed programme will soon be released.

== TOPIC ==

Core subjects and issues of social responsibility

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) defines social responsibility according to seven core subjects; organizational governance, labour practices, the environment, fair operating practices, consumer issues, community involvement and development. The latter two can also be recognised as cornerstones of museums' everyday activities and actions. Therefore, we have decided to focus on the core subjects community involvement and development to discuss what social responsibility means for museums. Short lectures, panel discussions and workshops will be dedicated to the following topics:

  • Community involvement
  • Education and culture
  • Employment creation and skills development
  • Technology development and access issues
  • Wealth and income creation issues
  • Social investment
  • Health Issues
