We’re pleased to announce a series of events connecting climate change, sustainability and film this November.
Whether you’re interested in exploring the meaning of environmental film making, looking to enhance the sustainability of your film productions or turn your hand to a creative challenge – we’ve got something for you.
Wednesday 15th November, 6 – 8pm
What defines an ‘environmental film’? Do films have a role to play in raising awareness and changing our culture towards a more sustainable one? In this Glasgow Green Tease event we’ll be joined by Scott Donaldson, Head of Film Education at Creative Scotland, and Aimara Reques, Producer of the extraordinary documentary Aquarela (release date 2018), with screenings of film clips old and new, and audience discussion.
Wednesday 22nd November, 10 – 5pm
Carbon Literacy with albert is a unique, engaging and solutions based training session offering attendees from the UK production and broadcast industry the information and inspiration to live and work in a more sustainable way. Across the 6 hour workshop, delegates can expect to be challenged with engaging presentations, fun (yes, fun!) activities and the space to reflect and plan. On successful completing of the day, attendees will:
- have a sound understanding of the science of climate change
- understand how to take action to reduce their impact
- recognise the impact that production has on the environment
- have knowledge of the tools and techniques to lessen this impact
Monday 27th November, 5 – 7pm

About Creative Carbone 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.
