2019 Arts Council England Webinar series

Following the success of our first series, we have designed two interactive webinars to help you plan and take strategic action and communicate more effectively within your organisations on environmental initiatives. In February 2019, as part of the 2018-22 Arts Council Environmental Programme, we will be offering two webinars to develop sustainability expertise and literacy across the cultural sector. These sessions will be most relevant to Arts Council NPOs, but others are more than welcome to join. They will feature a range of approaches, top tips, practical guides and examples from other arts and creative organisations.

Effective Environmental Policies In Action

The Effective Environmental Policies In Action webinar will provide you with a guide to aid decision-making around sustainability policies. If you are developing an environmental policy and action plan, we can help encourage staff ownership and buy-in from senior management. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach for developing an environmental policy. JB will discuss how to develop a policy and action plan that are specific to the nature of your organisation, activities and impacts, genuinely supported by top management and based on engagement with staff. We will provide templates and examples of what relevant policy and action plans should look like in practice, and hear from several case studies.

A simple governance guide will be supplied to help you refine your policy to be more effective and aligned to your organisational needs.

JB's Environmental Sustainability Project Manager Paul Crossley will be joined by Chrissy Angus, Head of Administration at Lyric Hammersmith, who will share her experience of developing Lyric's Policy and Action Plan.
