UK: Following the launch of A Greener Festival’s training programmes, the first one-day course to be held in London has now sold out. A handful of spaces are available for the course held in Manchester this month.
A Greener Festival has developed the course ‘Introduction to Environmental Assessment of Festivals and Events’, drawing upon the last 10 years of experience in assessing festivals around the world, as well as associate expertise in the areas such as waste management, power, transport, land use, communication and behaviour.
Designed to train auditors to complete assessments at festivals and events on behalf of the Greener Festival Awards, the training course – launched at the Green Events & Innovations Conference in March – is also relevant for those wishing to work in event sustainability, or those seeking to improve their own events environmental management.
There are still a limited number of places available on the one-day course delivered in Manchester at the MMU on Friday April 29 from 10am – 5pm. To find out more and to reserve a space on this course contact Claire O’Neill.
