Are museums your sort of hobby? Well, if they are, today might just be the perfect day for you as it is International Museum Day. Museums are defined by The International Council of Museums (ICOM) as “not-for-profit, permanent institutions in the service of society that research, collect, conserve, interpret, and exhibit tangible and intangible heritage.” Museums play a vital role in today’s society as they shed light on our past history. Sometimes, that history is not always on the right side, but it is valuable as it can educate and ensure that such events never happen again.
About International Museum Day:
International Museum Day is celebrated to highlight the significance of museums in cultures and societies worldwide. It aims to raise awareness about the importance of museums and their impact. This commemorative day was first established in 1977 and has since grown in participation, with over 37,000 museums from approximately 158 countries taking part in the event.
Each year, International Museum Day is themed around a set of goals based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. In 2023, the focus will be on three specific goals: Goal 3, Goal 13, and Goal 15. Here are the definitions of each goal, as provided by the United Nations:
Goal 3: “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.”
Goal 13: “Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.”
Goal 15: “Protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.”
Preservation and Longevity:
Museums are renowned for their dedication to preserving artifacts, ensuring their longevity for future generations to enjoy. Similarly, EWFM’s products exhibit a similar commitment to preservation and durability when supplied to our customers. Specifically, our range of Floating Roof Storage Tank Seals boasts an estimated lifespan of up to 20 years.
These tank seals are specifically designed to seal the tops of storage tank roofs. With 11 different types available, including primary and secondary seals for both external and internal tank roofs, they play a critical role in minimizing vapor emissions, ensuring safety, and preserving the quality of stored products.
