“I want my children to understand the world, but not just because the world is fascinating, and the human mind is curious. I want them to understand it so that they will be positioned to make it a better place.”

Howard Gardner

Eco Drama’s theatre productions, creative learning projects and workshops are delivered in schools, theatres, community venues and festivals across Scotland.

Now in our 17th year, we are expanding our Board of Trustees.

Our goal is to create high quality, meaningful work that inspires greater awareness of nature and reminds us we are part of an amazing living planet. Our productions and projects are unique in that they join up arts experiences with positive, practical action for the environment. To date, the company has worked with over 96,000 children and young people and their communities.

Our existing board comprises individuals passionate about the arts, education, and environmental sustainability. They champion and advocate for Eco Drama, environmental sustainability, and theatre and creative learning for children, young people, and communities across Scotland.
