Engage Scotland Youth Arts Training Autumn Programme

Type: Training

Drawing on ten years’ experience supporting the cultural sector in addressing the climate emergency, Creative Carbon Scotland will deliver a workshop that explores the visual arts/gallery sector’s response to concerns around the environment and sustainability, particularly in relation to how they engage young people in these conversations, and in the context of the build up to COP26 in Glasgow.

The workshop will cover:

  • A briefing on the culture & climate change context – policy, progress and trends in the sector.
  • An overview of good examples from arts organisations and artists already engaging with young people on issues of environmental sustainability and climate change.
  • An opportunity to reflect on climate justice, the intersections between climate change and social justice, and participation (and barriers) in climate action, particularly in relation to young people.
  • Discussion of actions participants are already taking in their own work.
  • Exploration of opportunities for more sustainable practice, and sources of additional support.

Delivered by Creative Carbon Scotland

Creative Carbon Scotland believes in the essential role of the arts, screen, cultural and creative industries in contributing to the transformational change to a more environmentally sustainable Scotland.

They work directly with individuals, organisations and strategic bodies engaged across cultural and sustainability sectors to harness the role of culture in achieving this change.
