51 Shades of Green: Action in the Arts will take place on Thursday 27th October 2016, returning to the Pearce Institute in Glasgow for a full day of discussion around the key actions the arts sector is making to reduce its environmental impact.
Last years conference (50 Shades of Green: Stories of Sustainability in the Arts Sector) saw attendees from across the arts sharing their experiences, inventions and approaches to carbon emissions reporting and engaging others with environmental sustainability. This year we’re matching the sharing of best practice with a focus on taking the next step towards carbon reduction, and building the momentum towards action in the arts.
Whether you’re a Green Arts Initiative member, a Regularly Funded Organisation working towards Creative Scotland’s ‘Environment’ Connecting Theme, an arts venue keen to find out what your peers are doing, an arts company who has been working on sustainability for years, or just coming to sustainability in the sector for the first time, there will be something for you!

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
