Manchester Museum has received more than £136,000 to roll out a two-year project targeting the museum sector's response to climate change.
'Roots & Branches' will scale up carbon literacy training across museums in England, creating a national "hub of cultural environmental action".
It aims to train 1,500 museum professionals and help 300 institutions pledge to take action against climate change.
Manchester Museum and the Carbon Literacy Trust, of which it is a member, will share a new coordinator post financed by the Arts Council England project grant.
"This project will be pivotal in developing museum practice further, transforming our sector’s capacity to support ecological thinking and action to build a sustainable future and inspire post-pandemic green recovery," Manchester Museum Director Esme Ward said.
