SHIFT Letter of Intent on Climate Action

SHIFT Partners Sign a Joint Letter



The SHIFT Letter of Intent on Climate Action is an important step towards uniting forces to tackle the huge worldwide challenge of climate change. The goal of the networks‘ cooperation is to develop and implement a framework consisting of environmental guidelines for cultural networks and a certification scheme.


The undersigned European and international cultural networks recognise the ecological footprint associated with operating a cultural network. They are committed to minimising this footprint, optimising environmentally sustainable practices, and acting as an example of good practice for their members and other networks, while also recognising the different contexts in which they are evolving. It is their aim to contribute to the following UN Sustainable Development Goals in this certification scheme:


  • 11 – Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • 12 – Responsible Production and Consumption
  • 13 – Climate Action
  • 14 – Life below Water
  • 15 – Life on Land
  • 17 – Partnerships for the Goals


This Letter of Intent has been signed by all the SHIFT partners.


Special thanks to the Green Leisure Group and Creative Carbon Scotland for contributing their expertise to this process.
