ICEFAT Green Pages
Since 2008, the ICEFAT Green Committee has received overwhelming support from the membership of ICEFAT as well as the entire museum community. This support has given the committee the energy to pursue research in many areas. The linked pages show some of the areas that we are working on currently. The committee meets via teleconference once a month and always welcomes new information.
