Exchange: Panel Discussion

Presented in association with the British Council

We will examine the urgent need for the arts and culture sector to reduce its carbon footprint in international and national mobility and exchange.

Our contributors will share their experiences and insights on current policy frameworks and innovative models and practices that are emerging to reduce the environmental impact of cultural exchange programs and travel.
