Julie’s Bicycle’s Creative Climate Chats: Nick Merriman
This webinar is organised by Julie’s Bicycle, one of Season of Change’s lead partners.
Julie’s Bicycle’s Creative Climate Chats are live conversations with leading thinkers in culture and climate on just transition, new economics for a regenerative economy, the net zero carbon challenge, and climate justice.
During this episode of Creative Climate Chats, we speak to Nick Merriman about his work with the Horniman Museum and Gardens and National Museum Directors’ Council to create a greener future and sustainable recovery post-pandemic for museums. We will hear about how the Horniman’s Climate and Ecology Manifesto is being implemented and what inspiration cultural organisations can take from this.
About the speakers
Nick Merriman has been CEO of the Horniman since May 2018. Before that he was Director of the Manchester Museum, where he focused its mission on promoting understanding between cultures and working towards a sustainable world, and oversaw the refurbishment of most of the Museum’s permanent galleries. Previously Nick was Director of Museums and Collections, and Reader in Museum Studies, at University College London for eight years. In 2020, the Horniman launched a Climate and Ecology Manifesto, outlining their platform for action to mitigate against the climate emergency by putting the environment at the heart of their mission, programming and collections. Nick is also Chair of the NMDC’s environment and ecology subgroup.
