10 Vienna Museums x 17 SDGs

As part of the initiative 10 Vienna Museums x 17 SDGs by ICOM Austria and OekoBusiness Vienna, the Secession pursues new measures for sustainability. As one of 10 Vienna museums, we are working to implement the United Nations’ Agenda 2030 with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Since 2016, the UN’s 17 SDGs have served as a global plan to promote sustainable peace and prosperity and protect our planet, and are intended to serve as a shared vision to fight poverty and reduce inequalities in national development plans.

Each of the participating Viennese museums has chosen two of the United Nations’ 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). The Secession has chosen the following goals:

12 RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION AND PRODUCTION

16 PEACE, JUSTICE AND STRONG INSTITUTIONS

We look forward to sharing more about the concepts we have developed soon. Beyond that, the other sustainability goals already are important as part of our work and will receive even more attention and integration in the future.
