On July 8 at 1pm EDT, ProjectARCC successfully hosted its first tweet up on climate change. From all around the twitterverse, archivists and like minded members came to talk about climate change on a personal and professional level. Using six questions to guide the conversation, we talked about what motivates us, the questions we have regarding climate change, and how we are taking action in our personal and professional spheres.
See the hour’s discussion in a curated Storify.
ProjectARCC has a four-fold mission to affect climate change.
- Archivists can educate themselves on disaster preparedness of preservation risks posed by climate change and protecting their collections.
- Archivists can advocate for reducing our professional carbon footprint.
- Archivists can elevate our collections to improve public awareness of climate change.
- Archivists can actively work to ensure long term preservation of the climate change movement.
