The challenge of changing the world is undoubtedly fascinating and the need for it, prevailing. If Greta Thunberg, only sixteen years old at the time, has set for herself the mission to leading the defense against climate change, every museum professional and every institution should be able to embrace a personal and collective commitment in favor of this global agenda.
This is the starting point for the XXI Museums and Education Seminar, of the MMB,  which was held on April 30, 2019, under the title "Education and Sustainability". This event was organized by both the Museu Marítim de Barcelona (Maritime Museum of Barcelona) and the Museu de la Vida Rural de la Fundació Carulla (Museum of the Rural Life of the Carulla Foundation), near Tarragona.
