Conference 21: Making Theatre Sustainable - presentations

Here are the slides from the presentations at our conference on 4 November.

Note that many of the sessions were panel discussions so there are no presentations for those.

Green Buildings

No two theatre buildings are the same and all are at different stages of the sustainability journey. How are different theatres of different ages and typologies addressing sustainability and how can the Theatre Green Book provide a structured approach to help prioritise action?

Going for Green

A presentation of research into how the UK’s theatre buildings are currently performing around sustainability, exploring both the potential for carbon improvements in theatres and what it would cost for all our theatres to ‘go green’.

Less is More

We need to build less and buy less. What does that mean for theatres? How much can we reduce our need to build and buy while still making sure we have theatres that meet audience needs and support a dynamic and fast-moving art-form?
