Ibermuseums aims to foster the sustainability of Ibero-American museum institutions and processes, a theme in a constant debate on the global political agenda since the 1970s.

Currently, this topic is one of the priority tasks for the United Nations (UN) and its Member States for the next fifteen years, the period defined for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030) in each country.

Ibermuseums responds to the demand for specific policies for museums in the region, is dealt with from a multidimensional (social, cultural, economic and environmental) and transdisciplinary perspective, contemplating several areas of knowledge.

Our actions are based on three key areas: research, engagement and promotion, always focusing on the sustainable development of the local museum field and promoting initiatives that allow for the design and construction of strategic activities that support new management models.

To move in this direction, in 2019 we have launched a Common Sustainability Framework, prepared by a specialized consultancy, as well as a diagnosis of the sustainability initiatives of museums already developed by Ibero-American institutions.
