Museum Development North West (MDNW), in partnership with Manchester Museum (MM) and the Carbon Literacy Project (CLP), have received £136,750 of public funding by the National Lottery, through Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants, for an ambitious two-year project. ‘Roots and Branches’ focuses on museums and environmental sustainability and aims to accelerate the museum sector’s ability to respond to the climate crisis.

We seek to appoint a freelance evaluator/s who will: develop the project-wide evaluation framework in consultation with MDNW, MM and CLP; collate and analyse project data and information (both quantitative and qualitative); report to the project steering group at various stages throughout the two-year project; produce a final report at the end of the project.

The launch of ‘Roots and Branches’ will coincide with the COP26 United Nations Climate Change Conference in November 2021. Over the next two years, this project will enable the scale up and roll-out of Carbon Literacy training across museums in England through Museum Development teams in England. This will be supported by a new Museum Carbon Literacy Officer post and by CLP. Click here to view the full brief.
