Our second annual conference for Green Arts organisations look place on Thursday 27th October 2016. Read our report on the day to find out about all the topics, ideas and knowledge discussed!
During the day, we heard from 17 different speakers across two spaces, with 9 sustainable suppliers and support organisations hosting stalls throughout the event. Talks concentrated on everything from energy reduction to transport policy; staff engagement to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals: all of which you can read about in the report, which aims to give detail to the day!
Now focusing on the aims, ambitions and currently actions of the 170-strong Green Arts Initiative membership, we’re already thinking about next year! If you wish to participate in our annual conference, as a speaker, stallholder, or participant, or have ideas about content, location or structure, please get in touch by emailing: Catriona.Patterson@creativecarbonscotland.com
Our annual conference is an event for (and by!) the Green Arts Initiative community: an interactive, free-to-join, community of practice for all Scottish arts organisations aiming to reduce their environmental impact. We are supported by PR Print and Design and an Arts & Business Scotland New Arts Sponsorship grant.

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.
