There is a high level of awareness and demand for sustainable and green initiatives in the field of culture. However, the arts and culture sector lacks unifying guidelines and tools to make an appropriate transition to green production. The sector itself wants to take ownership of the needed green shift and help develop the roadmap and identify effective measures and measures for more sustainable operations. Through close dialogue, it also becomes easier to encourage political intervention where we encounter regulatory obstacles.

The road map will be launched on the 9th of March.
