Webinar recording: Climate change: what can music groups do?

Our fourth meeting in our Climate Network series (original event 4 July 2023) saw contributions from the Scottish Classical Sustainability Group speakers, providing inspiration on what music groups can do to improve their sustainability, and also introduced the new Making Music Green Award.

The speakers for this event were:

  • Georgina MacDonell Finlayson and Scott Morrison, founders of the Scottish Classical Sustainability Group, who spoke about the Scottish Classical Music Green Guide, what inspired them to create this and how it can help you think about sustainability for your group. Much that is in the guide applies to other music genres, too, so this is for all and any leisure-time music groups with an interest in this issue.
  • Harriet Laidler, Membership & Projects Administrator and Green Team member at Making Music, who introduced the new Green Award, which will be presented for the first time this year at the Making Music awards. Harriet explained the thinking behind it and the criteria for nominating or putting yourself forward – and the fitting prize for the winner.

The views represented by the speakers in this webinar are their own, and do not represent the views of Making Music.
