Creative Green

What is Creative Green?

Julie’s Bicycle’s Creative Green programme works with individual organisations and networks through consultancy and partnership.

We have used our expertise to support over 2,000 cultural organisations nationally and internationally, empowering them to take action on the climate, nature and justice crisis.

No two partnerships with Creative Green look the same. Our ambition is to meet organisations, networks and cultural leaders where they are. We then work in collaboration to enable practical action for transformational change.

Our team work with galleries and museums, theatre and dance, artists, cinemas, music companies, festivals, city cultural practitioners, funders and policy makers.

How can we work together?

Our experienced team combines environmental and cultural expertise to:

  • Provide sustainability consultancy
  • Give expert advice on training and capacity building
  • Empower staff to take forward their climate action plans
  • Facilitate space to exchange valuable peer-to-peer knowledge.

We are particularly keen to work on projects where the learning can be shared with the wider sector to accelerate climate action.

As well as working with individual organisations, we encourage approaches from networks or groups of organisations who would like to work together. This enables those groups to pool resources to explore a common issue.

“With Creative Green support we were able to really challenge ourselves, focusing on increasing the efficiency of resources used, reviewing our business models and challenging our day to day practices as we work towards our net zero future. “
