Our home is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and heritage and with sites of special scientific interest on our doorstep, we feel a particularly strong responsibility to care for and protect our natural environment, and to encourage others to do the same.
We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment, increasing our sustainability, and creating a forum to bring environmental issues and climate change crisis to our audiences.
Our aim is to be an event leader in sustainability. We work closely with our Sustainability Partner Caledonian Horticulture on our event delivery and are part of the Green Arts Initiative and a member of Vision:2025, aimed at becoming a Net Zero event.
We have a dedicated Envirozone space to deliver our programme of events supported by SSE Renewables. The finale of which in 2021 saw Storm, a 10m high puppet, descend on the streets of North Berwick telling the story of oceans in crisis in what was a stunning closing spectacle. And we actively include performances within the schedule which focus on environmental messaging eg. Nurdle Hunt, World of Wind, Rockpool Ramble.
Our environmentally positive principles and actions are communicated to staff/volunteers and ultimately to visitors, thus expanding the reach of Green messaging in East Lothian and beyond.
