Not an Alternative

© Kristian Buus

The Natural History Museum (NHM), a project of Not an Alternative, unleashes the power of museums and science centers to expand the public consensus for ecological development, inspire new solutions and leaders, and strengthen community-led efforts to save water, land, and the climate. As both a traveling museum and an institution-transformation project, the NHM builds collaborations with Indigenous water and land protectors, local activist groups, scientists, artists, museums, and educational centers to produce exhibitions, events, storytelling, and online media that address current environmental issues. NHM organizes museum and science professionals to resist the influence of fossil fuel industries on cultural, public, and political institutions and help them to develop public engagement programs that support environmental justice.
