More arts organisations than ever are measuring their carbon footprint and many Green Champions are keen to find ways to make reductions in emissions. With so much data available we are developing a better understanding of how the creative sector produces emissions. We are now working on ways to support organisations to develop Carbon Management Plans to proactively avoid emissions on their next projects.
As part of this support we are developing a customised tool which will allow cultural organisations to track their current carbon footprint and to examine opportunities to reduce it. We want to make the tool useful and easy to use so we are asking for help to trial the tool during this development phase.
We will be holding a session for around 5 potential users to come along and provide feedback and suggestions for improvement. The session will take place during August in at our office in Waverley Court in Edinburgh.
If you are interested in helping us with the project, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline July 27 2017.

About Creative Carbon Scotland:
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.
