Caretakers of Wonder

    Caretakers of Wonder is a two-year project funded by a Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) National Leadership Grant. Set to run 2022-2024, the Madison Children’s Museum is the fiscal sponsor and director of the project.

    The project consists of nine children’s museums in four bioregions across the US and experts in climate education, communication, early childhood psychology, climate action and emissions reduction. The project will result in a developmental framework for museums’ climate action and engagement as they support children 0 – 8, and the adults who love them, in building compassion the climate knowledge, agency and hope for a bright climate future. Participating museum partners will also develop a plan to decrease emissions in the museum.

    ECP will provide program management support and oversight as well as work with the museum partners to develop plans to decrease emission in their museums.
