Tuesday, May 7, 2024, 9:30 am–2:00 pm


Trgovski dom, Corso Verdi 52, Gorizia, Italy


until all spots are filled // 6 May at 12:00

The training is primarily intended for representatives of organisations joining the emerging Soča Travelling Cinema – Cinema itinerante Isonzo network. However, we warmly invite representatives of all cultural organisations from both sides of the Slovenian-Italian border who would like to gain useful skills and information on implementing more environmentally sustainable practices and cultural activities – also in the context of the upcoming European Capital of Culture GO!2025.

The workshop programme includes:
  • greening the organisation’s operating system;
  • what cultural institutions need to do to reduce their environmental and carbon footprint;
  • how to design a mobility plan as a tool to reduce car usage and related mobility emissions;
  • actions aimed at changing the travel habits of employees and visitors.
About the workshop facilitators:

Gaja Brecelj is the Managing Director of Umanotera, the Slovenian Foundation for sustainable development that has been the leading NGO in the field of sustainable development in Slovenia since its beginning in 1994.

She advocates for systemic change and strives to live by the principle of ‘practice what you preach’. She is interested in social innovation and community practices as drivers of the transition to a sustainable society.

Aidan Cerar, PhD, is a sociologist trained at the University of Ljubljana and Leuphana University of Lüneburg.

He regularly gives lectures at Slovenian and foreign universities and regularly speaks at national and international conferences. He is an author of several articles dealing with urban development. During the drafting of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan for the City of Ljubljana, Aidan led the participation process. He is also a founding member of Library of Things, a social innovation service established in Ljubljana and a member of Maja Farol, a well-established group of architects. Before his position at IPoP, he had been working at the Regional Development Agency of Ljubljana Urban Region.

Following the workshop, at 14:30, participants are invited to the House of Film / Palazzo del Cinema (Piazza Vittoria / Travnik 41, Gorizia), for the third edition of the East/West – Border through Film and History symposium, exploring the audiovisual heritage along the Slovenian-Italian border. This year’s symposium, taking place from May 6-8, will focus on local film cultures, cross-border film practices and the role of television across the broader cross-border region. The symposium, co-organised by Kinoatelje and several national and European partners, is part of the European Capital of Culture programme GO! 2025.

About the network of film venues

The Go Green Cinema project, a joint venture by Kinoatelje and Motovila, is creating a network of film venues, named Soča Travelling Cinema – Cinema itinerante Isonzo. Starting this summer, we aim to bring film culture to life in remote areas lacking the infrastructure for professional, high-quality film screenings. In collaboration with the local stakeholders, the project aims to develop a cultural-tourist programme that will encourage film screenings visitors to explore also the local film and other cultural heritage.

The training programme is a component of the Go Green Cinema (GGC) project, funded by the European Union, through the Small Project Fund GO!2025 of the Interreg VI-A Italy-Slovenia 2021-2027 programme, and managed by the EGTC GO.

Registration is open until all spots are filled or 6 May at 12:00 the latest.

The workshop is free of charge and will be held in English without interpretation. Participants will receive a certificate of participation upon completion of the training.

The training programme is part of the Go Green Cinema project, jointly developed by Kinoatelje and Motovila.
