The BBC has announced a new virtual festival looking at media and its impact on climate change.
The Climate Creatives Festival is supported by albert, BFI, Creative England, Creative Industries Federation and the Royal Television Society.
It will include the latest audience insights; tips from practitioners and technologists; thoughts from those on the climate frontline; and discussions about how the creative sector can adapt to the changing demands of sustainable production while exploring the creative opportunities of including climate and sustainability themes in output.
The event will also include BBC Studios discussing the latest sustainable production practices; and the BBC’s R&D consumer media technology team, The Blue Room, will present research on the carbon cost of television and associated technologies – revealing where the potential savings can be found.
Speaking about the event, which takes place on Tuesday 5th October, Charlotte Moore, BBC chief content officer, said: “There’s never been a more important moment for creative people to come together and share ideas about how we can engage with climate change.
“Building on what we’ve learnt so far I hope this event will encourage greater collaboration and conversation, as I believe together we have an opportunity to enrich our content, stay relevant to audiences and play our role in looking after the planet we all call home.”
