We recognise that our world is in a climate crisis. With our youngest children at the heart of all our work, it is our responsibility to find new ways of working that can reduce our impact on the planet and reduce our carbon emissions. Starcatchers’ activities should contribute to children having a greener, healthier environment to grow up in.
At Starcatchers we are committed to monitoring, managing and minimising our environmental impact. We are delighted to be a member of Creative Carbon Scotland’s Green Arts Initiative , a growing networked community of 220 cultural organisations committed to developing a greener arts sector throughout Scotland.
How you can help?
We look to engage staff, artists and audiences with our environmental strategy and goals, asking for their assistance in helping us achieve these.
Are you coming along to see one of our productions, taking part in our Creative Skills training or attending some of our community engagement projects? We will ensure that all our venues are in easy reach by public transport, meaning that you can easily take the train, bus, carshare, cycle, walk or even unicycle (if you’re feeling brave!) to any Starcatchers work.
Reuse, reduce, recycle
When attending our shows, projects or training, please use the recycling facilities provided (or ask a member of staff if you can’t find them!) Using reusable cups is a simple and easy way to reduce single use plastics.
Share your ideas
We believe that sharing ideas is an amazing way to combat climate change. As an organisation we have learnt so much by talking with other organisations, artists and early years practitioners. We are always looking for ways to make our organisation greener, so if you have any suggestions, please contact our green champion Natalie Gibson.
