ASTC, Members Join “We Are Still In” U.S. Climate Action Movement

ASTC is proud to be part of the ever-growing We Are Still In coalition supporting climate action, an alliance of U.S. cultural institutions, businesses and investors, cities and counties, colleges and universities, faith groups, health care organizations, states, tribes, and other non-federal actors.

We Are Still In, at nearly 3,600 signatories, demonstrates America’s enduring commitment to delivering on the promise of the Paris Agreement and America’s contribution to it. It is the broadest cross-section of the U.S. economy ever assembled in pursuit of climate action, and the largest demonstration of continued climate leadership in the face of the federal government’s intended withdrawal from the Paris Agreement.

ASTC’s participation in We Are Still In continues decades of commitment to climate communication, education, and action by creating and facilitating related resources and opportunities for the science center and museum field. Some of these include the Greenhouse Earth traveling exhibition of the 1990s; ongoing contributions from the field in Dimensions magazine and at ASTC Annual Conferences; engagement and action projects for ASTC members in the 2000s and 2010s, such as the IGLO project (International action on GLObal warming), C3 initiative (Communicating Climate Change), SCEnaRioS program (Science Centers and the Engagement and the Rio Summit); and current projects such as Corals Matter.
