Leave a trace, not a footprint!

Leave a trace, not a footprint!

by Culture Liverpool

Leave a trace, not a footprint! That’s the message from ROCK, who are presenting a FREE series of three webinars of how cities can reduce the environmental impact of cultural events.

In the framework of ROCK, EUROCITIES and Julie’s Bicycle are launching “ROCK Green Streams,” a free series of inspiring talks and presentations on how cities reduce the environmental impact of cultural events, streamed during the coronavirus situation.

Cities are uniquely placed in the race against climate change, and culture can build resilience for change to come and lead cities to a more sustainable future. This series will be the opportunity to promote what cities are already doing to adapt culture to projected climatic changes, to raise awareness about sustainability issues in the cultural and creative sector and to showcase how culture contributes to the European Green Deal and Sustainable Development Goals.

Now is the time to act for a better world!
