The museum as enabler, the role of museums in the climate empowerment of young people

Wouters, S.

The author argues that children and young people can be seen as an oppressed group, having to suffer the impact of the climate crisis as consequence of the shortcomings of older generations. As a result of this adult inaction, young people have increasingly been suffering from climate anxiety, and thus, feel that they must take matters into their own hands in the hope of mitigating the climate crisis. Based on earlier research on the inherent strengths and responsibilities of museums, it is asserted that museums can be fitting institutions to act on the needs of young people. Specifically, this thesis reflects upon the different approaches that museums have been using so far to empower children and young people responding to the climate crisis. Case studies: Natural History Museum, Framer Framed, the Klimaatmuseum, and the Climate Museum UK. The analysis illustrates how each of these museums approach climate empowerment in diverse ways. The author proposes an innovative approach for museums to engage with young people concerning the climate crisis: “the museum as an enabler,” centred around the enablement of young people in their own self-empowerment, taking action into their own hands – with the support of museums.
