Sustainability charter for cultural organisations launched

It is with great pleasure that we launch the Green Arts Charter, a collaborative sustainability agreement designed for and by member organisations of the Green Arts Initiative (GAI).

The charter aims to inspire, support and provide a framework to deliver the climate action needed to achieve transformational change in Scotland’s cultural sector and beyond. Sign the charter today!

Since SPRINGBOARD 2023 in February, a cohort of cultural organisations including the BarnBothy ProjectCrypticFèisean nan Gàidheal, the Edinburgh International Festival and Starcatchers has been working with us to develop a Green Arts Charter.

Through a series of meetings, workshops and ongoing feedback, cohort members have agreed four core pledges focused around mitigation & adaptationcollaborationcommunity and advocating for change. They are pledges that all GAI members can work towards and provide a way to bring about collective climate action as a network.

Alongside the pledges we have developed a framework of actions to guide an organisation’s environmental action planning. Each pledge has different goals, and each goal has different actions an organisation can take to achieve it. We also have a list of resources that organisations can use to understand each goal. As new ideas, collaborations and ways of working are introduced, new goals and actions will be added.

Find out more about why we’ve created the charter.

We encourage organisations to read and sign the charter. Any organisation that is not already part of the GAI, a network of 400+ cultural organisations across Scotland working on sustainability, is encouraged to sign up first.
