Welcome to Sustainable Arts

Here you find information, tips and tools to foster sustainability in the cultural sector.

The cultural industry can make a significant contribution to the sustainability principle of using the planet’s limited resources in such a way that future generations can also benefit from them. There’s a good reason why the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) include several that are directly related to culture.

Cultural sectors

This website currently focuses on the film industry; however, many of the recommendations and measures you will find here apply across disciplines and, with a little creativity, can be applied to almost any cultural project. Other cultural sectors will be included in the future and more content will be added.
