JB’s 2020: A Year In Review

We can’t quite believe the year we’ve all had

Join us as we reflect back on some of our achievements together in this tough year, despite the challenges. Thank you all for your support in 2020 and we look forward to brighter things next year.

Climate Leadership and Training

We equip cultural professionals and artists with the knowledge and confidence to speak out on the climate issue, using creativity to influence one another, audiences, and the wider movement. Here we spotlight our We Make Tomorrow summit, Creative Climate Leadership training and three-week Season for Ex-Change festival.

Advocacy

We advocate to, and for, culture to publicly inspire action on the climate crisis and sustainability with reports, resources, commissioning and regular events across the UK and beyond.

Campaigns

From the launch of the campaign for #JustGreenCulture that galvanised more than 850 signatories, and #MusicDeclares launching in Chile, it has been a busy, even if predominantly virtual year.
