A Greener Festival

The A Greener Festival organisation is running a training event in Manchester next month on making festivals and events more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

The training at Manchester Metropolitan University on 9 and 10 Apr is in part aimed at anyone interested in becoming an assessor for A Greener Festival’s own awards scheme, which assesses and rates the sustainability of festivals and events all over the world.

However, the programme is also open to event organisers and managers, and anyone working in event sustainability, with topics covered including legalities, procurement, travel, power, waste, sewage and event communications.

Organisers say: “The course offers graduates a rapid route into environmental operations and will equip them with the knowledge and tools needed to undertake thorough assessments of a wide range of indoor and outdoor events, in order to appraise their environmental processes and protocols in line with A Greener Festival’s guidelines for sustainability and the environment at events”.
