Sustainable Event Management: A Practical Guide: 2nd Edition ... May 2014

Sustainable Event Management: A Practical Guide: 2nd Edition ... May 2014 | Sustainable Events News | Scoop.it

“Let’s be honest about it. Meegan’s book was already the reference piece for the whole scene. So many people were inspired by and guidlines based on her great work and it is even better to see that the new edition brings it to another level. Newbies can learn about the principles of sustainability and its quadruple-bottom-line management. Advanced people can adjust their operations according to the great help offered in this book and professionals can sneak a peek at events, initiatives and projects worldwide that are show-cased in so many examples concerning all sorts of action areas.

What makes it even more worthwhile are those looks over the edge of events organization and on general principles and definitions that help us understand how sustainability is to be implemented in our society and should be in our businesses as well. There is still a long way to go and development to be achieved in the events industry to become more and more sustainable. I am sure that Meegan contributed massively to the filling of the gap – again!

With this remarkable piece of advice in your hands there simply is no way saying “I don’t know how to do it”.” Holger Jan Schmidt (GO Group & GreenEvents Europe), Germany

A great way to power your event without using fossil fuels is to get the event attendee's legs working and pedal power your event. Companies exist that have purpose built multi-bike generators which provide power to stages and cinema. Look on the SEA website for contact details of a pedal power company near you.
