Culture Change

What is Culture Change?

Culture Change is a free business support programme designed to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the East of England become more financially and environmentally sustainable. To view a short film about the programme, click here.

The Royal Opera House programme provides a minimum of 12 hours free support with resources including a series of conferences and seminars and a peer-to-peer business support network. We also offer the use of carbon calculator tools and advice on managing resources efficiently, developing an environmental policy and bespoke support and action planning.

The Culture Change programme is supported by the European Regional Development Fund.
