This online event, organised by Scotland’s Climate Assembly and Culture for Climate Scotland, is the first in a series of conversations with different sectors. It will:

  • Provide an overview of the goals and recommendations in Scotland’s Climate Assembly’s final report;
  • Consider how the cultural and creative sector can further the recommendations, both through our own practices and by engaging audiences and communities, and build support for the Scottish Government to adopt the recommendations.

We will hear from Scotland’s Climate Assembly and (by video) from Dr. Katherine Trebeck of Wellbeing Economy Alliance, about the recommendations of most relevance to our sector.

Responses from the cultural sector will be made by:

Talks and discussions will focus on four key areas:

  1. Community empowerment & the 20-minute neighbourhood
  2. Carbon literacy, education & information
  3. Circular economy & resource use
  4. Reframing how we measure success

We recognise the differing challenges and opportunities for the freelance portion of our sector, and are keen to incorporate freelancer perspectives throughout the discussions.

The event will be held on Zoom. Please register via Eventbrite. You will be emailed the meeting login details upon registration.

Scotland’s Climate Assembly brought together just over 100 people representative of Scotland, to learn about, discuss and make recommendations on the question ‘How should Scotland change to tackle the climate emergency in an effective and fair way?’.

The final report from the Climate Assembly was published and laid in the Scottish Parliament on 23rd June 2021.

Culture for Climate Scotland was initiated by Creative Carbon Scotland and is a diverse group of organisations and individuals working in the creative and cultural sector, aiming to galvanise thinking and action around a just and green recovery by and for our sector.
