In 2016, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency’s (SEPA) launched its strategy One Planet Prosperity which sets out the organisation’s ambitious new direction: to create one of the first environmental regulatory systems in the world that is suited to the challenges of the 21st century. By recognising the need for us to find new ways to thrive within the planet’s capacity to support us, the strategy addresses SEPA’s role in driving Scotland’s environmental, social and economic success across businesses and communities.
During this event SEPA will share with the Green Tease network their vision for a more sustainable Scotland, with a special focus on air quality as an vital but invisible meeting point for a wide range of factors relating to sustainability including: climate change, social equality and public health.
Through presentations and discussion, participants are invited to explore how artistic practices could offer news means of understanding our relationship to air pollution, and contribute to the wider cultural shift to a more sustainable Scotland, with the view to building opportunities for future collaborations
This event is one of four taking place across Scotland in March 2017 which will explore the connections between culture and climate change with artistic and sustainability practitioners as part of CCS’s culture/SHIFT programme. Find out about the culture/SHIFT season and other events.
