Eco Drama are passionate about making quality theatre and creative learning experiences for children and young people which nurture a sense of curiosity, wonder and care for our natural world and remind us we are part of an amazing living planet.
Founded in 2007, the company’s theatre productions, projects and workshops are delivered in schools, nurseries, theatres, community venues and festivals across Scotland and the UK. Eco Drama has a green ethos and strives to embed sustainability in all aspects of the work, from the content and themes, to how it is created and delivered. For example, productions explore sustainable set design and tour in an electric car and eco van run on recycled waste cooking oil, which reduces the organisations CO2 emissions by 85%.
Eco Drama also deliver training for teachers, early years practitioners and other education professionals, and create educational resources. Eco Drama’s ‘Out to Play’ resource packs are used in schools across Scotland as well as in countries across the world including Canada, Australia, New Zealand and USA.
To date Eco Drama have worked with approximately 86,000 children, young people and their communities, promoting the power of the arts to inspire people of all ages to take positive, practical action for the natural world.
