The Edinburgh MELA (Sat 29th & Sun 30th August 2015) – Scotland’s biggest and best festival of world music and dance – is actively seeking volunteers for their Green Team. Your role will be helping with the recycling at the MELA by encouraging festival-goers to recycle properly and by being on hand to answer any eco-questions that they might have.

  • A full day of volunteer training
  • A hot and tasty meal per shift (plus refreshments from the hospitality area)
  • Free tickets for the entire festival
  • A limited edition MELA t-shirt
  • A reference (upon request) once you’ve successfully completed your volunteer post.

Applications are now open so be sure to get yours in!

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.
