What does this look like in cities? A compendium of case studies for policy-makers regarding culture and climate change in cities.


1. Greening the cultural sector Providing tools, resources, and practical support (including financial mechanisms and infrastructure investments) to reduce the carbon emissions, and other environmental impacts, of the creative sector

2. Citizen engagement and public awareness Supporting the role of culture and creativity in participatory policy-making and governance, making sure that city climate policy is fit-for-purpose and working with culture to increase understanding and awareness of the issues involved

3. Cultural involvement in environmentally-led regeneration and urban infrastructure Projects that emphasize the role of the arts and culture as laboratories to test and develop new infrastructure approaches, understand their role in activating and shaping spaces and urban geographies, and policies that recognise the unique skillset that creative professionals have in devising solutions
