The Ki Culture Sustainability Training Pilot Programme was part of ETC's pledge to become a climate neutral network by 2030.

19 January - 27 April 2022, every Wednesday, 1h online at 3 pm CET

This intensive pilot programme was an opportunity for 10 - 15 ETC member theatres to join a global effort to use culture to drive sustainable change in their organisations and communities.

Ki Culture ran a similar programme in the museum sector with major organisations including The Smithsonian (Washington), Museo Moderno (Buenos Aires), Deutsches Museum (Munich), and the National Museum Lagos (Lagos).

The ETC pilot supported policy creation to reduce carbon footprint; decolonise institutions and practices; create inclusive and accessible spaces; and work towards sector-wide circular solutions and implementation.

It was coached by renowned circular economy consultant Thierry Leonardi and included:

  • a self-assessment period
  • tailored meetings for each member theatre with a Ki Coach,
  • 4x 'Core trainings'
  • 3x Speciality 'deep dive' trainings
  • Regular meetings with all ETC participants

Each theatre could select multiple 'champions' to be involved in the project who can split the time commitments between them - and link in with the global 'Ki Champions' network.
