Creative Carbon Scotland is inviting people working across arts and sustainability contexts to submit their views on the role of culture in creating a more sustainable Scotland as part of the Scottish Governmentâ€™s call for contributions to the development of aÂ new Cultural Strategy.
Creative Carbon Scotland is seeking to ensure that the connection between culture and climate change is recognised in the cultural strategy and to open up the conversation of the wider role of culture in society particularly in relation to environmental sustainability.

AboutÂ 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 publicâ€™s emotions, values and ideas.
