This weekend sees the latest ‘Conference of the Parties’ (COP) climate summit kick off in Egypt, with COP27 due to bring world leaders, climate scientists and activists together.

European indie body Impala is using the event as a spur to launch a new climate-focused campaign called #WeMeasureTogether. It’s to support the carbon calculator tool that it launched with non-profit organisation Julie’s Bicycle earlier this year, which Impala says is already being used by nearly 70 of its independent label members.

The body is hoping to boost uptake even more, and then use the data to “create an overview of the sector and develop a carbon baseline” for future research and action.

In separate news, a group of culture ministers from the Nordic region have announced a new pilot project to “help culture projects budget for climate compensation”.

So, not just about music, but other arts and cultural sectors too. The Sustainable Cultural Experiences project is being backed by DKK 500k ($65.6k) in funding from the Nordic countries.

Music Ally’s next Learn Live webinar will help you understand what’s required for artists to thrive in new international markets!
