At Vamos Theatre, we believe we must all step up and make changes, however challenging they may be, so that we can live happy, healthy lives within the limits of the planet, leaving space for the natural world.
In response to the climate emergency, and with the support of Julia’s Bicycle, the Theatre Green Book, Arts Council England and One Planet Living®, we have launched a three-stage Environmental Action Plan to reduce the environmental impact of our theatre making and touring.
Our Action Plan is based on the One Planet Living framework, designed to create a route map towards a more sustainable future. One Planet Living, created by Bioregional and developed together with WWF, comprises ten intuitive principles that can be used by anyone – personally and professionally – to imagine, plan, do, and communicate about sustainability.
For Vamos Theatre, this means identifying the many ways our actions affect the environment, instigating practical ways to reduce our impact whilst retaining the cultural and social value of what we do, and expanding our sustainability ambitions over the coming years.
Throughout the life of the Action Plan, we will be sharing our actions with our supporters. Please let us know your thoughts and help us make the best difference we can.
