At Community Leisure UK, we recognise the climate change emergency and take responsibility as a membership body to support our members in their resilience and their local role in achieving environmental targets. For this reason, and with the support of a working group of members, we have created a strategic environmental priorities document, which outlines our Climate Change Action Plan and how we intend to support members. We are also reviewing our own role as membership association and are in the process of developing an environmental policy for Community Leisure UK as organisation.
Community Leisure UK is part of a working group in England that is developing policy asks that will support the public leisure sector to become more environmentally friendly. These policy asks will be presented to the UK Government ahead of COP26.
Community Leisure UK is pleased to support the Theatre Green Book. The project, spearheaded by ABTT, Buro Happold and Theatres Trust and coordinated by Paddy Dillon, builds upon the work of Julie’s Bicycle, Creative Carbon Scotland, SiPA, Ecostage and others.
The Theatre Green Book initiative pulls together existing guidance and creates a shared standard for environmentally responsible theatre across three volumes:
For more information on the Theatre Green Book, please see Theatres Trust’s introduction here.
Sustainable Productions is available now in a beta version for trialling and can be found here https://theatregreenbook.com. Theatre makers on all scales and contexts are invited to register their interest in trialling and feeding back on the document. We encourage theatre-makers to start working with it as they plan re-opening shows, and feed back their experience. You can also sign up to one of the upcoming free introductory webinars.
Work is now also starting on developing Sustainable Buildings and with an extended deadline to Friday 23rd April for theatre owners and operators to complete the Green Book – Theatre Buildings – Survey. This information will help us understand the current status and future priorities for making theatre buildings more sustainable.
