Cut your carbon footprint, gain knowledge and insights from a professional trainer and join like-minded people with our carbon literacy workshops.
Opera North is a company with a global outlook, and we believe it is our responsibility to put environmental thinking and action at the heart of what we do. From eco-friendly event transport to integral changes in our building and fully recyclable sets for Not Such Quiet Girls and upcoming Alcina, our award-winning Green Team is a catalyst for positive change. One of our key actions has been training all staff to become carbon literate, the first opera organisation to do this.
With all Opera North staff now happy recipients of their certificates, we’re delighted to be able to offer this great opportunity to you, our supporters. Opera North’s Senior Technician, Jamie Saye, will guide you through the course, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience. A certified Carbon Literacy trainer, Jamie is the co-founder of Sustainable Arts in Leeds (SAIL,) a not-for-profit organisation tackling climate change.
“Jamie is a really engaging trainer, making complex issues easy to understand and driving awareness of how to make a positive impact on the world.”
