In the midst of the ongoing climate crisis, how can cinemas reduce their own environmental impacts and inspire action in their communities?
Over recent years we have seen colleagues across the sector develop and deliver pioneering work to address this challenge.
Working with Julie’s Bicycle, the global charity working at the intersection between culture and environmental sustainability, we have developed a free downloadable toolkit that showcases some of this work alongside key information about climate change issues, regulations and legal obligations, with ‘top tips’ to help cinemas implement these ideas in their own venues.
To support the launch of this resource and aid further learning, the ICO is offering two free half-day training courses on how to make your cinema environmentally sustainable, delivered by Julie’s Bicycle.
This first course will run at The Photographer’s Gallery in central London on Wednesday 18th March 2020 (1-5pm). The second course will run at Phoenix in Leicester on Wednesday 25th March 2020 (1-5pm).
- Carbon literacy and environmental impact reduction – tailored around the specific challenges and opportunities experienced by cinemas.
- Supply chains – looking at the principles of good procurement, influencing catalysing wider change through our choices and opportunities for new business models, R&D projects and material and social innovation.
- Strategy and governance – linking environmental sustainability to organisational values and purpose, and approaches to creative climate leadership.
This course is open to anyone working in film exhibition, from small independent exhibitors to larger cinemas and multi-arts venues.
The course is free but places must be booked in advance.
