Roundtable: Creatives in an era of Climate Emergency

Edinburgh and Online

Presented by Creative Carbon Scotland

Four leading experts come together to inform and shape our conversation as we discuss what role the creative industries play in the Climate Emergency, how to inform our practices and what should we be aiming for as a community.

This event is taking place as part of the Green Tease events series and network, a project organised by Creative Carbon Scotland, bringing together people from arts and environmental backgrounds to discuss, share expertise, and collaborate. Green Tease forms part of the culture/SHIFT programme.

Prefer to join us online? No problem! This event will also be run online as we stream the panel discussion through Zoom and take your questions/comments through the chat function.

The event is hosted by Creative Edinburgh in partnership with Creative Carbon Scotland and CodeBase.


Roundtable: Creatives in an era of Climate Emergency is the second event in our new Creative Edinburgh event series. The series aims to create a space to gather around the ‘freelance table’ and discuss challenges faced by creatives and offer a chance to share thoughts, ideas and recommendations. Future topics will include fair work and inclusion.
