This seminar is for senior staff of Creative Scotland Regular Funded Organisations and Creative Scotland Lead Officers. It will help RFOs, Creative Scotland and Creative Carbon Scotland work together so the sector can play its part in achieving the ambitious carbon reduction targets set by the 2019 Climate Change Bill currently going through the Scottish Parliament, the need for which is highlighted by the recent report of the UK Committee on Climate Change. In response to the now widely accepted Climate Emergency, Scotland is committing to be carbon neutral by 2045, with Glasgow and Edinburgh City Councils aiming for carbon neutrality by 2037. These are challenging targets and mean that business as usual is not an option for any part of society: we are all going to have to do different things, not just do the same things differently.
What we’ll cover
We’ll outline the Carbon Reporting and Carbon Management Planning processes that are requirements of current RFO funding agreements but more importantly we’ll jointly explore how to strengthen our ambition so that the sector is preparing for significant carbon reduction during the next funding period towards the mid 2020s whilst achieving its core aims of producing, presenting and supporting great artistic work. If possible, therefore, co-ordinate with your RFOs/Lead Officer respectively to attend the seminar together.
Who’s it for
These seminars are aimed at senior staff and board members involved in artistic and organisational planning rather than operational staff. Creative Carbon Scotland’s Carbon Management Planning Officer will provide more operaitonal support during the reporting process from July onwards.
Tea and coffee will be provided.
We are currently setting up further seminars during June and July in Glasgow, Inverness, Dundee and Aberdeen with webinars for those who cannot attend a live seminar for reasons of their location. Seminars in Inverness on 15 July Glasgow on 16 July morning and afternoon, Dundee on 22 July and another in Edinburgh on 19 July are already organised.
