Pathways toward net zero

On World Environment Day we headed to UNESCO world heritage site Blenheim Palace for a special event exploring what the journey towards net zero looks like for cultural organisations.
Over the day we learned about Blenheim Palace's sustainability journey in energy, waste, and environmental communication, and explored how your own organisations' sustainable vision and goals could best bring people (both internal staff and the wider public) along with you on this journey.

Beyond Carbon + Exploring Biodiversity

In August we headed to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew for the second session in the Creative Green Masterclass programme, exploring how cultural organisations can champion biodiversity in buildings and programming.

We saw some fantastic presentations from the sustainability, learning, and outreach teams at Kew showcasing how they are working with their audiences, scientists and the public in communicating the importance of biodiversity on site and within communities around the UK. We also discussed how the Sustainable Development Goals can provide a strategic framework for taking action on environmentalism.

During the session we shared a draft of our Biodiversity briefing - keep an eye out for the full release this Autumn.
