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.

Job: Broadway Green Alliance – Assistant Director

The BGA, launched in 2008 in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council, is an ad hoc committee of The Broadway League and a fiscal program of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Core Principles:

  • It is impossible to be 100% “green” – we can only be greener. Each of us can begin by doing something to benefit our environment today, no matter the size of the action.
  • The climate crisis is the result of millions of decisions and it demands action – big andsmall – from each of us. Change results from the cumulative effect of our actions.
  • Climate neutrality is insufficient. In order to lessen the damage caused by climatechange and restore our climate to historically safe levels of atmospheric CO2, the BGAworks to promote climate positive action and commitments.
  • We must build an equitable and just climate movement and address the disproportionateeffect of environmental degradation on poor and BIPOC communities. There is no climate justice without racial justice.

We are seeking a full-time Assistant Director to play a pivotal role in advancing the future of sustainability in the theatre community. The BGA operates at the intersection of theatre and the environment, and we are looking for someone with passion for both. Experience in each area is valuable but not required.

The Assistant Director will report to the Director. They will work closely together in a small team environment. Assistant Director responsibilities include maintaining day-to-day operations, planning and executing virtual and in-person events, managing our in-office recycling collections and Green Captain programs, developing social media content and email communications, and serving as a primary point of contact for queries from the community. To be successful in this role, you should excel in workflow management, project coordination, and people management skills.

All BGA staff and volunteers are expected to understand and embrace our mission statement and core principles, and share our commitment to justice and anti-racism in our operations and practices.
