Founded on Earth Day in 2015, Project ARCC is a task force of archivists striving to motivate the archival community to affect climate change.
The collective believes that archivists, those responsible for the preservation of history for future generations, should be as passionate and concerned about preserving a habitable and safe planet. Their four-fold mission is:
- Protect archival collections from the impact of climate change
- Reduce our professional carbon and ecological footprint
- Elevate climate change related archival collections to improve public awareness and understanding of climate change
- Preserve this epochal moment in history for future research and understanding
