It has been said that museums can and should be safe places for unsafe ideas. In our current politically-charged climate, it is more important than ever for gardens to serve in this same capacity. But how as an institution can you navigate this role in a way that both addresses the needs of your guests and remains true to your mission?
This session will explore how a botanical garden, whose mission includes advancing sustainability, human health and well being, is using visitor research to address the polarizing topics of climate change, consumption, and population growth in thoughtful and targeted ways and is inspiring action within its walls and beyond.
