With great success and high attendance took place yesterday the online event “Natural History Museums and Society”, co-organised by the Natural History Museum of the Lesvos Petrified Museum, the Natural History Museum of Crete - Official Page and the Αριστοτέλειο Μουσείο Φυσικής Ιστορίας Θεσσαλονίκης - ΑΜΦΙΘ.

The three museums responded to ICOM’s call for the celebration of the International Museum Day 2021 with the theme “The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine” and organised an event aiming to explore the role of the Natural History Museums in present-day society and their contribution towards a sustainable future.

Mrs. Teti Hadjinicolaou, President of ICOM - Hellenic National Committee , addressed a greeting at the beginning of the event. The event concluded in a vibrant discussion among the participants. A common finding was the particularly important role that Natural History Museums play in informing - raising public awareness of the environmental issues.

Museum synergies and networking can make a difference
