Here in Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly, it feels like the creative sector is at the forefront of leading sustainability practice – with CLASH events, Feast’s Shout Louder campaign, Goodfest and The Sustainable Creative Charter, we’ve already seen a huge amount of interrogation of the question ‘What does sustainability mean to me – in my life, my work and as part of society?’ as well as loads of great examples of trailblazers making sustainability the essence of what they do and how they do it. For example, Cornwall is the second largest cluster of B Corps outside of London in the UK with lots of people committing time and resource to building their businesses around a triple bottom line of people and planet, and profit for all.
However, developing your sustainable practice does not have an endpoint. There is always more you can do, whatever your stage of development as a creative and whatever sub-sector you work in, it’s not too late to start now, or enhance what you are already doing. The CLASH action fortnight is designed to help you do more.
