Creative Carbon Scotland (CCS), the arts and sustainability charity, and Vattenfall, the energy company working toward fossil-free living within one generation, are delighted to announce a deal that sees Vattenfall become a corporate sponsor of SPRINGBOARD, Creative Carbon Scotland’s newest initiative to harness the power of the arts and culture for the transformation to a net-zero, climate-ready Scotland and world.
SPRINGBOARD: assembly for creative climate action, taking place online 27 February – 2 March, is a key part of the multi-faceted SPRINGBOARD project, and Vattenfall is providing financial support that helps ensure that cultural and climate actors from across Scotland will be able to attend amidst the cost-of-living crisis.
CCS Director Ben Twist said: ‘This partnership between CCS and Vattenfall makes great sense. Vattenfall values the roles of the arts and culture and community engagement in achieving its objectives as a renewable energy leader. CCS, for more than a decade, has been helping the cultural sector become sustainable itself, lend its unique creativity to collaborations on climate change, and use its voice and influence for the transformation to a fairer, greener society.’
Frank Elsworth, Head of Onshore Wind Development UK at Vattenfall, said: ‘Our goal is to make fossil free living possible within a generation. Across our wind farm sites, we have a history of involving our communities through art and culture in our projects – from artist residencies at our wind farms to community art and cultural initiatives. We’re delighted to support people across Scotland to get involved in this exciting event.’
SPRINGBOARD takes the nascent, growing collaboration between people and organisations working on culture and those working on climate change to the next level. It is bringing together cultural, environmental and community organisations and individual practitioners, local authorities, businesses, charities, government and public organisations to collaborate on the transformational change needed to address the climate emergency.
