The UK's creative industries are great inventors and harnessers of technology as well as having an impressive track record of interpreting innovation. This Beacon Project will examine how creative businesses will use their skills and experience to help other sectors meet the challenge of sustainability as well as become more sustainable themselves. Widely recognized as one of the major changes facing the economy, sustainability presents both challenges and opportunities for creative businesses to forge partnerships with other organisations, or take the lead to employ their design skills, innovative thinking and technical knowledge to tackle some of the biggest challenges of modern life We will look at how the creative industries will help shape solutions not only for themselves but also for other sectors. It will map out the likely futures of sustainability and working with leading experts, businesses and organisations identify what actions, funding and activities need to be put in place to turn these ideas into reality and help creative businesses generate revenue and jobs in the global market. The KTN team is working with Forum for the Future, the sustainable development charity. To get involved or spark new discussions on this topic make sure you have registered for this Beacon Project. We will be providing more details about how the Beacon Project will work in the coming weeks and plan to stage a kick-off event that will set our aspirations and ambitions.
