Glasgow City Region Climate Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan

Flagship Action 3: Increasing community agency in adaptation processes through culture and creative practice Intention The development and testing of a new approach to engaging new actors and citizens in adaptation governance and delivery, through regional culture and the use of cultural and creative practices and processes. Creative Carbon Scotland will lead in working with several cultural organizations based in the region and with their communities, to develop a wider application of creative arts and communication that reaches new audiences. Applying different cultural practices and activities, co-designed with local cultural groups, will help to develop informed perspectives on adaptation and resilience. This in turn will help to build greater connection and ownership, so that individuals and communities are enabled and empowered to participate in adaptation processes. The results would be felt at a number of levels, such as in broad community and locally-led initiatives, in place-based approaches, and local and regional governance processes and the means by which decisions are made, helping drive systemic approaches to address more fundamental levers of change. Delivery of this action connects directly to synergies with Flagship Action 1 and 2. Outcomes The work will ensure a wide range of voices are included in the region’s efforts in climate adaptation, particularly those most vulnerable to climate impacts, and those most marginalized in society. Working with cultural organizations will support the reach to different constituencies, develop different understandings and encourage new forms of communication about adaptation. This more inclusive approach will help to build a groundswell of much needed diversity, new voices and different ways of responding to the challenge. It will help ensure that individuals and communities have the desire and ambition to drive action so that their places are climate ready. Such an approach has the potential to influence the design of new civic projects, to broaden perspectives in the discourse, to build a movement of empowered, mobilized individuals and communities. This has the potential to achieve shifts in mindsets, values and political priorities to support adaptation.
