Creative Carbon Scotland is pleased to announce that our annual gathering for the Green Arts community will take place on Wednesday 7 November in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The conference aims to be the central meeting point for Scotland’s cultural Green Champions, and those interested in how the arts and cultural sector is taking on the challenge of environmental sustainability.
With a focus on carbon management, adaptation to the impacts of climate change, using the arts to shift our wider culture, and best-practice from our member organisations, the full-day event will showcase how we can lead the way to a sustainable Scotland.

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.
