In a continuation of our work around how the cultural sector can make a positive contribution to a sustainable future for all, we are working with a Tayside based Climate Beacon team lead by Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre.
Organsied by Creative Carbon Scotland, Climate Beacons for COP26 is a Scotland-wide collaborative project between climate change or environmental organisations and arts, heritage or cultural organisations to stimulate long-term public engagement in the lead-up to and following COP26.
The Tayside Climate Beacon is a partnership between Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre, the James Hutton Institute, V&A Dundee, Dundee Museum of Transport and other partners in Dundee, Perthshire and Angus, that will use design-led thinking to explore a range of issues across the Tayside bioregion encompassing urban and rural areas as a microcosm of Scotland. We are attached to this Climate Beacon as an Aberdeen satellite through our Culture Collective project.
We believe that working across sectors we can together help to better understand Climate Change and reduce its impacts and are delighted to involved in the Climate Beacon for COP26 project.
