Is culture the untapped ally for climate action?
Initiated by Creative Carbon Scotland, a collaboration of cultural bodies in Scotland has commissioned a powerful short film – ‘Climate action needs culture’.
As the climate emergency grows more intense, increased public understanding and engagement are urgently required and innovative ways of thinking and working needed. Scotland’s cultural institutions and creative sector have a compelling story to tell of the dynamic ways they can contribute to climate action but it’s a story that until now has been often overlooked. This event and the project that underpins it brings together the knowledge and expertise of Scotland’s cultural sector with climate experts to make the case for culture as a crucial player in climate action.
Join us online for the launch of the film, followed by climate and cultural leaders providing effective examples of collaborations in climate action and a Q&A to identify your next steps in working jointly with cultural and climate colleagues.
