We’re proud to be a founding member of the Scottish Classical Sustainability Group – a collective that won the Environmental Sustainability Award at the 2021 Scottish Awards for New Music hosted by New Music Scotland. The group is delighted to announce that the Scottish Classical Music Green Guide is out now.
A free guide written collaboratively by over 30 orchestras, ensembles, festivals and individual musicians from across Scotland, it contains knowledge on how to reduce carbon emissions in all aspects of your work.
The guide is intended to be relevant and useful to you whether you are an individual musician, part of a team, or in a position of leadership.
In order to get the most out of the guide, we recommend that you:
· Share it widely within your network: with friends and colleagues, different teams across your organisation – including musicians, and with senior management staff, and board/committee members.
· Discuss it: online or in person. We think a discussion of the guide will provide a good opportunity to create momentum, engage in meaningful conversations and agree on actions.
· Make it visible: the more people who read the guide, the more effective it will be! We encourage you to share it on social media and add news stories or blog posts to your website linking to the guide.
· Arrange an event: if you would like to arrange an event for staff or audiences to talk about the ideas in the guide, and would like members of the Scottish Classical Sustainability Group to talk at this, please contact Georgina MacDonell Finlayson.
