The Green Arts Initiative 3

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.
