In its Fundamentals, Es Baluard defines the museum as a common good that must be a paradigm of respect for equality at all levels, as well as the rights of living beings in order to contribute to a more sustainable and solidary planet, maintaining the attention on environmental resources and ecology based on education in civic values, social commitment and committed culture. Attentive to the future of society, we want to contribute to networking and open source work based on transparency as an ethical principle.

Since 2013, Es Baluard has conceived a program of activities in this area and with the new strategic plan Es Baluard 2018 this philosophy of action has been intensified, of understanding life and culture with different agents and collaborators with whom it wishes to build and walk together.

«Paisatges sostenibles» (Sustainable Landscapes) of Es Baluard materializes in a series of activities related to art, ecology and sustainability that are part of the museum’s regular programming in line with its intention to create links between culture, environment and sustainable development.

In addition, the museum has set up an internal work group to become a sustainable museum.

Some of the lines we are focused on are:

  • Educate in the defense of the environment where we are, from the local to the global driving the Km0 and as a cultural complex the area we occupy in the city of Palma.
  • Implement measures to minimize our environmental impact.
  • To work in a network from the own staff of the museum with suppliers and collaborators respectful with the environment.
  • An improvement in the efficiency of resources applied to the operation of the building-equipment, exhibitions and activities.
  • Adapt to regulations and improve management in the control of waste and use of natural sources.
  • A content and activity programming that is aware of respect for human, animal and plant sustainability.
