Julie’s Bicycle

The creative community acting on climate change and environmental sustainability

Julie’s Bicycle’s vision is a creative community powering action on climate change. We are a charity with 10 years experience supporting the creative community across the UK and internationally to take action on climate change and the environment. We believe that a thriving arts community will be one with environmental sustainability at its heart.

Julie’s Bicycle support creative organisations on reducing their own environmental impacts, engaging audiences, creative programming, governance, policy development and supporting artists. We have worked with organisations including the National Theatre, Festival Republic and Somerset House, amongst many others. We provide specialist events, certification, research, guides, and our own sector-specific carbon calculators.

At the heart of our work is a strong belief that the arts and culture have a vital role to play in creating a better future in line with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.
