We are aware of the ongoing situation concerning the spread of the covid-19 virus and its potential implications for public events.
In line with current government and NHS recommendations, any public events we are involved in organising will continue as planned and we will be taking reasonable precautions to ensure good levels of hygiene and minimise any risk. We encourage attendees of any events to also take reasonable precautions as suggested by the NHS.We continue our standard practice of improving the accessibility and minimising the carbon emissions of our events by filming or recording at many of them, and recommend taking advantage of these resources going forward should anyone require an alternative to attending in person. We are monitoring the national situation and will make those of you who have signed up to one of our events aware of any changes or updates.
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.
