The relationship between humans and the natural and built environment is perhaps the most urgent problem facing our planet. The next decade will be determining for all of us and acting against climate change is more urgent than ever. Over the last couple of years, the links between sustainability and culture have become much clearer, though policies which prompt real change are slow to follow. In this global context, we are working on the crucial role the creative community can play when faced with today’s environmental challenges. You will find our various fields of action below. Do not hesitate to get in touch so we can look into which type of coaching suits your project.
Coaching for Musicians & Technicians
The Green Room collaborates with touring artists and designs tailor-made coaching programs that fit their environmental & social objectives. We act as facilitators & ensure all parts of the touring process & the various partnerships follow environmental criteria, from writing residencies to post-production. We offer creative ways to reduce the impact of our professional activity in various fields : transport, waste handling on the road, accommodation, merch manufacturing & distribution, communication, digital practices as well as the importance of acting as a role model to encourage collective awareness and involvement.
Coaching for cultural organisations, networks and communities.
We think it essential to change our working habits & adopt new low-carbon practices. Our aim is to guarantee arts & culture’s integrity while adhering to carbon emission limitations in accordance with scientific advice. In the last few years, many professional organisations, venues, networks and communities have grown aware of this necessity but simply do not know where to start. We have had access to initiatives, advice, inspiring practices, case studies, tools and methods and can therefore offer a type of coaching that suits your transition project.
Workshops and trainingq
You want to raise awareness of the environmental impact of touring among your co-workers? You are working with artists and technicians and want them to take environmental challenges into consideration? You are organising an event and want to include a workshop on ecological transition in our professional practices? Do not hesitate to contact us, we offer a wide range of online or in-person training and workshops which can suit your needs.
Conferences and professional events
We are regularly invited to fairs, conventions and professional meetings regarding environmental issues in the cultural sector. We can also make you benefit from our network, facilitate and / or help you create round tables, conferences and any type of social events around these themes.
Sharing & raising awareness
We give visibility to artists, technicians and structures who work on issues related to the climate crisis and / or are firmly committed to the environmental cause in their practice. The music industry, as a sector, has a powerful collective imagination, a voice that matters. Our experiences and actions around a fairer and more sustainable way of life can encourage everyone to get involved, and we can use our voice to amplify awareness, advocate our cause to decision-makers and help find solutions.
