Today I received an email from Kate MacGarry one of the founding team of Gallery Climate Coalition urging galleries, art workers and artists to join the Coalition and work towards its core goal of collectively reducing carbon emissions by 50% over the next ten years (in line with the Paris Agreement) as well as promoting near zero-waste practices.
Here at Parapluie we have signed up immediately as a member, we believe we all have a responsibility in tackling the growing global climate crisis.
We’re not perfect and don’t pretend to be, there’s a lot to learn and even more to implement into our working practices, but we join in ernest and commit to trying our very best.
We hope others will join as members too and contribute a voluntary donation at the point of joining. GCC is a not for profit organisation and soon to be charity, so funds are vital to sustain and expand operations.
On the newly launched website is a great carbon calculator created by Artlogic and some great video discussions exploring climate and environmental issues: https://galleryclimatecoalition.org/
