Creative Carbon Scotland – a charity initiated by Festivals Edinburgh and founder members the Federation of Scottish Theatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network – is a partnership of arts organisations working to help shape a sustainable Scotland.
We believe that the arts have an essential role to play in addressing the problem of climate change and building a sustainable society.
Accordingly, our vision is of a cultural sector that is fully engaged in creating a sustainable Scotland through the work it makes and presents, through the way it operates and through its communication with the wider public.
Our mission is therefore to:
- Engage the sector in actively promoting environmental sustainability and addressing climate change
- Help the sector take a lead in shaping an environmentally sustainable Scotland
- Help the sector run itself as environmentally sustainably as possible
Over the last year there has been an enormous increase in interest in our work and we now need an experienced manager and administrator to help us fulfil our strategic aims and provide strong leadership for the sector. This will be a part-time role on an employed or a freelance basis and is currently funded until 31 March 2016; we intend that this be extended subject to funding and agreement on both sides.

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
