What is Event Sustainability?
Event sustainability refers to the practice of planning and executing events in a way that minimises negative environmental, social, and economic impacts, and maximises all the positive impacts.
The goal of event sustainability is to create events that are environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and economically viable. It involves considering the entire lifecycle of an event, from planning and preparation to execution and post-event evaluation, and taking steps to reduce the event's environmental footprint, promote social and cultural inclusions, and support local economies.
Examples of sustainable practices in event planning include reducing waste, conserving energy, using sustainable materials, supporting local communities, promoting inclusivity and diversity, and engaging stakeholders in the planning process.
Ultimately, event sustainability is about creating events that not only meet the needs of attendees and organisers, but also contribute to the health and well-being of the planet and society as a whole.
