A Greener Festival Conference to discuss sustainability, social division and censorship

UK: With just two weeks to go until A Greener Festival and the ILMC’s Green Events & Innovations Conference (GEI9) at London’s Royal Garden Hotel, the full line-up of speakers and sessions has been released.

On March 7, the Conference will invite live events professionals to discuss issues of sustainability and the role that the international industry must take in the face of perceived political and social divisions, and artistic censorship.

GEI9 will debate issues from site design and infrastructure, sustainable set and stage design, the impact of fireworks and special effects on the environment, what Brexit and the current political environment means for events, and how censorship and oppression of musicians is reported to have doubled between 2015 and 2016.

GEI9 is A Greener Festival’s annual flagship event delivered in partnership with the International Live Music Conference (ILMC).

The theme for GEI9 is ‘Sustainable Design’. The art of creating every aspect of events involves both creativity and impeccable production techniques. By instilling ecological, economic and social principles in to all aspects of event design in conception, communication, implementation and review, necessary changes can be achieved.

GEI 9 will explore how sustainable design is being applied to operations, artwork, infrastructure and management, to align events with our natural and technological environment in the 21st century.

This is in addition to the usual program of the most current innovations and developments at festivals and events from around the world, including those assessed by A Greener Festival.
