Green is the word…
Today marks the launch of London’s Conference on Delivering Sustainable Theatres. Conference 12 looks at the sustainable design, development and operation of theatres in relation to environmental, economic and social disciplines.
Taking place in Stratford Circus, the topic being discussed at this week’s conference is: ‘Delivering sustainable theatres – the challenge of achieving the triple bottom line’. Environmental, social and economic impact, are pillars valued by the Theatres Trust, the national advisory public body for theatres.
In recent years, we have witnessed many a positive step towards achieving sustainability within the UK’s theatre infrastructure. In 2008, the Mayor of London launched Green Theatre: Taking Action on Climate Change. We were also introduced to the Trust’s own Ecovenue scheme, which supported the environmental performance of 48 London venues.
Blue & Green Tomorrow applauds efforts for a sustainable venue infrastructure. Part of the challenge in creating a sustainable platform for future generations, lies with such multifaceted approaches to environmental engineering, design and production.
Green, most certainly, is the word.
