Opportunity for those working in the arts to directly influence the Scottish Government’s thinking about climate change as they prepare for the publication of an important document, the third Report on Policies and Proposals, in December.

Creative Carbon Scotland is partnering with Sniffer, an Edinburgh-based environmental charity, to enable artists and cultural workers to participate in Climate Conversations, a public consultation on climate change.

This event is part of a wider series, funded by the Scottish Government, which aims to gather public perspectives on climate change for feeding into a report presented to the Scottish parliament this winter.

Creative Carbon Scotland has partnered with Sniffer to run a session in Aberdeen specifically focused on those working in the arts, whether within cultural organisations, in academia or as freelancers. As a sector that is commonly overlooked in relation to the issues surrounding climate change, this is an important opportunity to strengthen the role of the arts and culture in transitioning to a more sustainable Scotland. No technical or special knowledge is required.

The event will be an informal conversation guided by Sniffer, taking place on Thursday 1st September, at the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen, from 18:00 – 19:30. This venue is wheelchair accessible.

By participating in the event you will have the chance to:

  • Discuss climate change and its impacts;
  • Learn about Scottish Government action to reduce our carbon footprint and protect people from the impacts of climate change;
  • Make your views heard by contributing to the RPP3, a report on climate change which will be presented to Scottish Parliament this winter.

Places are limited to allow an in-depth conversation to take place, so please register early and RSVP to gemma.lawrence@creativecarbonscotland.com by Monday 29th August.
