It is Imaginate’s mission that more children have access to good quality work more often.
Imaginate recognises that through the festival and year round programme of activity we have an impact on the environment. Through this policy and the support of the Imaginate team and Board of Directors, we aim to monitor and reduce our environmental impact where possible and limit avoidable carbon emissions.
We are committed to doing our part to reduce our energy and material consumption, looking for ways to improve year on year, not just in our festival operations, but in our wider year round work. Through our networks and programme we will also continue to encourage debate and share best practice with the wider children and young people’s sector.
As an organisation we aspire to help achieve the wider Festivals Edinburgh Environment Strategy, which has the vision:
By 2020 Edinburgh’s Festivals will be firmly established as excelling in environmental sustainability, by taking responsibility for their environmental impacts and pioneering initiatives to reduce their carbon emissions.
Imaginate is a Green Arts Festival.
