Creative Carbon Scotland’s Summer Festival Season

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

We recently realised just how much we managed to fit in this summer! I bet you’d be surprised, we were!

Below is a collage of the events we have run this summer, not including our monthly Green Teases. They are in the following order: Going Green: Good for the Screen, “Achieving Social Change, Festival by Festival”, our Green Arts Initiative social media campaign, our #GreenFests blog, the Fringe Sustainable Practice Award, and the Fringe Swap Shops.

To find out more about our summer activities take a look at our #GreenFests blog!

Also, just because the festival season is over don’t think that is the end of our Creative Carbon Scotland events!

This month we have our two Green Teases; the first on the 29th of September, an Edinburgh Green Spaces Barge Tour with Edinburgh & Lothian Green Spaces Trust (ELGT) , and the second, on the 30th of September in Glasgow, ‘A Space for Art’ with Dress for the Weather. We also have, coming up in October, our 50 Shades of Green: Stories of Sustainability in the Arts Sector conference at the Pearce Institute in Glasgow.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates of what CCS has planned!

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.
