Creative Climate Leadership programme
We are excited to be joining the second Creative Climate Leadership course, designed and facilitated by Slovenian-based sustainable development and training NGO PiNA, and Julie’s Bicycle, a London-based charity supporting the creative community to power action on climate change. 23 ‘leaders’ have been selected to join the course in Koper, Slovenia, 9th to 14th October 217. The course will:
● Explore the role of culture and creativity in responding to climate change and environmental challenges
● Bring together a range of expert guest speakers to share case studies, research approaches and practical solutions for environmental sustainability in the cultural sector
● Enable each participant to develop their leadership and ideas
● Prepare participants to apply their learning and new skills when they return home and support ongoing learning and exchange through an alumni network.

The participants are working in areas as diverse as cultural policy, theatre, festivals, education, music, development, museums and visual arts.
