Event Details

As part of Low Carbon Oxford Week, Julie’s Bicycle are pleased to be facilitating a half-day practical workshop at the Old Firestation

What does a sustainable future look like for the creative community? How will our practice flourish? How can we contribute to the emerging green economy?

Join us to find out about how arts organisations and practitioners are embedding environmentally-sustainable practices to enhance their brand, develop relationships, and reduce their operational costs. You will have the opportunity to discuss these themes and re-imagine Oxford as a low-carbon hub, with creativity and culture at its centre.

We will look at how creative companies, venues and event producers are benefiting from sustainability and saving money by re-valuing materials to reduce waste; driving demand for new green products and services; working with renewable energy; and adopting radical new business models. 

You will have the opportunity to share your experience, network with other local creatives, and come away with lots of inspiration, practical actions and big ideas to develop your organisation's sustainability. 

As an outcome of the workshop, Julie's Bicycle will also help you to create your very own environmental policy and action plan so that you can document, share and communicate your aspirations and record your actions for improvement.

Julie's Bicycle

Julie’s Bicycle’s vision is a creative community powering action on climate change.

Julie’s Bicycle is a London based charity that supports the creative community to act on climate change and environmental sustainability. We believe that the creative community is uniquely placed to transform the conversation around climate change and translate it into action.

We provide the creative community with the skills to act, using their creativity to influence one another, audiences and the wider movement. We run a rich programme of events, free resources and public speaking engagements, which contribute to national and international climate change policy development.

Julie’s Bicycle supports the Paris Agreement goal to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius by focusing on energy, the major source of carbon emissions for the cultural sector. More than 2,000 companies use the Creative Industry Green Tools, our suite of carbon calculators, and our certification scheme, Creative Green, is the recognised benchmark for sustainability achievement within the creative industries.

We have a deep engagement with the arts and cultural sector, working with organisations and independent professionals across the UK and internationally to embed environmental sustainability into their operations, creative work and business practice.
