Sustainability in Culture

The green agenda for the cultural sector includes more than waste sorting, energy renovation of buildings, preferring train travel over air travel or tap water over water in plastic bottles, and other factual initiatives that can be shown in numbers in an Excel sheet. The cultural sector needs to pursue its own green agenda by defining what sustainability means to it. The project examine a bottom-up approach to what effect and influence the cultural sector can have on a society that wants to be sustainable and creates the greater understanding of different aspects of sustainability. The main aim of the project is to find out what is the unique role that culture can play in a sustainable and green agenda.
