New Year's Resolution ideas from London Sinfonietta

A new year has begun, so it's time to reset, revitalise, and perhaps set a resolution or two. We've picked out five ideas for a New Year's resolution in 2022 - and of course, they are all ways in which you can get involved with the London Sinfonietta's work!

1. Take steps to live a greener life

Now more than ever, climate change is a big talking point across the globe. Everyone can play a role - big or small - in addressing the global climate crisis, and we've used our platform to actively respond to this significant challenge.

From Tansy Davies' Cave to Matthew Herbert's more more more, we've produced work that engages with the subjects of climate, waste and biodiversity.
