At the 42nd Annual AIC Meeting, Jeff Hirsch presented a session titled “Children as Agents for Preventive Conservation.” This session explained how children can change a family’s learning and its attitude towards conservation, drawing on studies that show how an understanding of complex issues, including sustainability, can be extended from children to the rest of the family. This process may be used to help protect collections by increasing public understanding of, and sensitivity to, preservation and the limits of museum resources.
