Connections: People, Nature and Power
The Glasgow Goes Green Festival is brought to you by UofG, GSA, GCU and Strathclydeuniversities! We are all so excited to get started, and would love for you to get involved! Things are, of course, going to work a little differently this year – our usual physical gathering just won’t be possible. However, we are confident that our alternative format – a collaborative e-zine – will be equally effective and thought-provoking.
This year, our theme is Connections: People, Nature and Power. It is deliberately very open because we want to hear from everyone!
Potential topics could include teachings of the city’s COVID-19 response for the climate movement, the community’s preparations for COP26 or the role of nature-based solutions in Glasgow. Submissions can come in a range of formats – prose, artwork, music, videos, podcasts. Additionally, feel free to add in ‘How to get involved’ sections to your submissions to promote longer-term engagement with your work.
We hope this will be a space to reflect on the current socio-environmental circumstances and what feels important to you, or your organisation, at this time.
The deadline for submissions is March 31st. Pieces will be selected, and you will be contacted with the outcome on 7th April, with the online zine publication date in May 2021.
We ask that if possible, you use WeTransfer to upload a link to your submission, otherwise the form will fill up quickly with the data required for attachments.
If you have any questions or difficulties submitting your work, please don’t hesitate to get in touch by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The post Opportunity: Call for submissions to the Glasgow Goes Green Festival e-zine appeared first on Creative Carbon 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.
