Event Details

Creative Carbon Scotland are working with Cove Park and many organisations across Scotland to launch a series of Local Assemblies for Creative Climate Action. SpringBoard brings together individual artists and cultural organisations with people working on climate change to form powerful local networks for climate action.

1.30pm – Arrival (with teas and coffees)

2:00-2:10 – Welcome

2:10-3:30 – Climate Justice and Arts & Culture

Climate justice is a way of understanding how climate change results from and exacerbates existing inequalities and injustices as well as how climate action can help create a fairer world. This workshop will share our research into how climate justice thinking is relevant to the arts and culture sector in Scotland and provide opportunities to explore how this relates to your own organisation or individual practice.

3:30-3:45 – Break (with teas and coffees)

3:45-4:45 – Understand Cultural Adaptation and Your Influence in the Wider Culture Ecosystem

Cultural organisations are experiencing the impacts of climate change, from flooding to travel disruption but also warmer summers. Adaptation is the term given to thinking about how to manage the risks and grasp the opportunities this presents. This session will introduce you to climate adaptation in the context of your local area as well as globally, enabling you to identify main climate change risks using our Cultural Adaptations toolkit and collaboratively planning how to approach adaptation in your work.

4:45-5:30 – Round Up Discussion & Next Steps

5:30pm – Networking Drinks (drinks provided)
