Greenwashing Culture and Sport
November 5, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We often think of the culture industries as green, certainly in comparison with the extractive or manufacturing sectors. But culture is integral to what Toby Miller has termed “greenwashing” and to ecological destruction through both the sponsorship of culture by major polluters and the pollution generated by the culture and sport industries themselves. Various responses to this situation present themselves: boycotts, disruption, shareholder activism, regulation, and so on. Miller explores how these might play out, if implemented.
