Transport museum partners with credit card
London Transport Museum is teaming up with Mastercard to help raise awareness about climate change and how we create a greener future.
Global payment provider Mastercard is one of four leading businesses supporting the London Transport Museum’s Climate Crossroads programme, alongside Mott MacDonald, Cubic Transportation Systems, and Sopra Steria.
Taking inspiration from the engineering ingenuity of London’s transport past, Climate Crossroads invites visitors to the award-winning Covent Garden museum to explore the technology, skills, and jobs we need to build sustainable cities and transport.
During the summer holidays, from Saturday 23 July to Thursday 1 September, families visiting the museum can explore a new interactive ‘Green Journeys’ installation that will get them thinking about a greener future for London.
Guests will discover the role transport can play in making the capital more sustainable, and how we can all do our bit to help tackle climate change. Creative and hands-on workshops will also take place on selected dates.
As part of their partnership with Mastercard, London Transport Museum will restore 5,000 trees through the Priceless Planet Coalition. Thanks to Mastercard’s global forest restoration partners - World Resources Institute and Conservation International - these trees will be planted in locations across the world that have the greatest potential for positive impacts on the climate. Restoring trees is a simple and powerful way of capturing CO2 and mitigating climate change. The Priceless Planet Coalition aims to restore 100 million trees by 2025.
Sam Mullins OBE, Director, London Transport Museum, commented that London Transport Museum is proud to be part of Mastercard’s Priceless Planet Coalition, which brings together businesses to support vital reforestation. This summer, with Mastercard’s support, we are inviting our visitors to think about how we can all create a greener future. Visitors will discover how public transport makes cities more sustainable, how engineers are creating new green technology, and some of the small actions we can each take to make a difference.
Nigel Thomson, Director of Merchant Marketing & Partnerships at Mastercard, added
Mastercard is delighted to partner with London Transport Museum to support our ongoing forest restoration efforts through the Priceless Planet Coalition. In working closely with the team at London Transport Museum we’ll be launching a summer campaign across a range of in-museum and digital channels which we’re sure will engage visitors to the museum as they support this collective effort to mitigate climate change.
