Institute for Sustainable Events – Bringing sustainability to life through events

Institute for Sustainable Events – Bringing sustainability to life through events | Sustainable Events News | Scoop.it
We hope that you can remain positive and while in the short term we are all being effected by the coronavirus outbreak. We know that when it comes to hit re-set, sustainable event management skills are going to be all the more important. Our natural world is taking a breather from human impacts right now, while we all slow down, and our natural systems are being allowed to recover too. This slow-down is releasing the pressures of resource use, consumption and pollution on the planet. The effects of this will be obvious and add to the growing demand and expectation for responsibly produced events as we move ahead.

If you're interested in effective ways to encourage people to act sustainably, join a conversation in the Green Room on 7 July with Livvy Drake. Ask your questions now. | Sustainable Events News | Scoop.it

What drives behaviours at events? What makes people litter, leave their rubbish, complain about the vegan menu or expect bottled water? How do you get someone to carry reusable water bottle or coffee cup?

 

If you are trying to make your event more 'sustainable' these are some questions you may be having - how do we make people care?! Behaviour is driven by a number of factors including the event culture and social norms people fall into, plus the infrastructure and set-up which leads people's behaviours and reinforces those cultural norms.

 

I'm Livvy Drake and I have worked with events on radically changed the social norms using various behaviour change techniques, which I would love to share with you. Ask me anything about behaviour change at events on Tuesday 7th July at 16.00 BST. I will be in the Green Room answering your questions.

Sustainable Event Awards 2020

Sustainable Event Awards 2020 | Sustainable Events News | Scoop.it

Sustainable Event Awards are here!

 

We are excited to announce today our partnership with Event Industry News to launch the Sustainable Event Awards.

 

It has been extremely rewarding in these last few years to see the massive uptake and serious attention given to sustainable event management practices and the realisation by event owners and sponsors, that events can be powerful advocates and platforms for positive change.

 

Announced in February, and its launch obviously delayed due to the global Covid-19 crisis, the decision has been taken to  launch the awards to celebrate achievements so far for our sector and to make positive steps for the future.

  

The awards have rigorous assessment criteria, designed to shine a light on the truly global leaders in event sustainability excellence.

 

Judging criteria aligns with the Sustainable Event Alliance's  Membership Charter covering:

 

  • Commitment, communication, leadership
  • Social responsibility
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Reporting

 


The Sustainable Event Alliance looks forward to reviewing, acknowledging and celebrating sustainable event excellence, across a terrific range of event sectors and supplier categories.

 

Entries open April 1 (no fool!)
