“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” –Margaret Mead
Founded on Earth Day in 2015, ProjectARCC is a community of archivists taking action on climate change. We believe that archivists, those responsible for the preservation of history for future generations, should be as passionate and concerned about preserving a habitable and safe planet for future generations.
We believe that archivists have a professional responsibility to:
Protect archival collections from the impact of climate change
Reduce our professional carbon and ecological footprint
Elevate relevant collections to improve public awareness and understanding of climate change
Preserve this epochal moment in history for future research and understanding
