In February, IETM launched a new initiative regarding its Local Journeys for Change programme, the IETM Green School 2023. From March, IETM offers extensive and practical training for members on greening tools and sustainable practices.*
The aim of the programme is to launch a membership-wide initiative and empower the IETM network to take concrete steps towards bringing change to their local professional contexts and enrich the IETM community with innovative practices and experiences.
To launch the IETM Green School 2023, we hosted a webinar on 21 March 2023, 16:00 CET - 17:00 CET to kick off the programme. We introduced our members to the updated structure of the programme, its opportunities and the connecting initiatives of the network feeding into it; such as at the preliminary results of the survey on green transition, the work of the Environmental Working Group and the work done on the implementation of the SHIFT eco guidelines with other networks.
To conclude the webinar, we invited Iphigenia Taxopoulou, founding member and Secretary General of the European theatre network mitos21, associate partner of Julie’s Bicycle and author of the upcoming book Sustainable Theatre: Theory, Context, Practice (Bloomsbury / Methuen Drama, 2023) to outline the journey the sector has already taken since the 90s. She also shared some of the most inspiring initiatives, practices and policies, and how it rises to the current challenges, how to move forward and how to build on the current momentum.
