Today on World Environment Day, the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA), in association with Bash Creations, will announce the launch of an Arts & Ecology Day in 2009.

The announcement of Arts & Ecology Day 2009, which takes place at City Hall, will comprise a fast moving one-hour programme of performance and commentary by people committed to responding positively to sustainability challenges. Music, poetry, practical ideas and inspiration will be provided by a range of contributors including Royal Institute of British Architects President Sunand Prasad, theatre director Nigel Hinds, musician Marmaduke Dando, and world leading expert in the development of sustainable cities, Peter Head, Director at Arup.

This pioneering initiative will engage the creativity and influence of the arts community in making London a more sustainable city. ‘Arts & Ecology Day 2009’ will raise the profile of sustainability by celebrating new plays, poems, music, artworks and dance across London, with the aim of developing into a world-wide campaign.
