Shift Liverpool is the sustainability network for the Liverpool City Region’s cultural sector.

As a network we want to collaboratively address the climate emergency and the Liverpool City Region’s ambitious 2040 zero-carbon target.

Together we can share knowledge, resources, and create new initiatives to benefit the whole sector.

The network operates with a chair, a secretary, a steering group and a general membership.

Any organisation signing the pledge will automatically be enrolled to the general membership, giving them access to the mailing list, quarterly general meetings and webinars.

Member-organisations that want to play a more active role within the network are invited to be considered to join the steering group. This means they will be able to help shape the strategy of the network and be part of the decision-making process. The steering group will meet every month.
