|Creative Climate Action
Yesterday, Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media Catherine Martin TD launched Creative Climate Action on behalf of the Creative Ireland Programme in collaboration with the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications.
Creative Climate Action is for creative projects that engage the public on the urgent need for climate-related lifestyle and behaviour change. Together the Creative Ireland Programme and Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications believe that creativity, arts and culture have a vital role to play in bringing the urgency of this challenge to the forefront and encouraging and facilitating change at all levels of society. Collaborative proposals which bring together creative makers from across the arts and creative industries, climate change and environmental NGOs, education, science and civil society sectors, and offer creative, innovative and interdisciplinary solutions will be encouraged.
Applications are now open and all explanatory materials are available on https://creativeireland.submit.com and www.creativeireland.gov.ie .
