How can the culture sector orient its organization and audience towards an ecological culture?

Cultural and creative businesses today represent a crucial asset in responding to the climate emergency.

The Sustainable Culture program offers support and training services for cultural organizations that intend to reduce their environmental impact and strengthen project proposals within the TOCC call.

On the occasion of the release of the call “Ecological transition cultural and creative organisms” (TOCC—Call), with a deadline of 12 July 2023, our services can be included in the project proposals.

Our services:
