This session will explore making the music industry more sustainable. Creative Carbon Scotland will discuss a project they are currently working on with Dr Matt Brennan at the University of Glasgow. This project aims to identify what the city’s music sector needs to thrive in the future and investigate what role music and culture can play in a broader, just and green transition. This project has so far cumulated in a mapping of venues and sustainable transport in the city and a social network mapping of music venues. The findings so far will be summarised from this project with a wider discussion around the impact of these findings. They will also discuss previous work (the ‘Fields of Green: Towards sustainable Scottish music festivals’) they have done with Matt around music festivals.
