Delegates from across Europe spent two days in the lovely city of Bonn debating, learning, discussing, networking and having some fun too at the fabulous Green Events Europe conference. A predominantly festival based event in 2010, the conference had been widened in 2011 to cover all live events and attracted attendees, speakers and panellists from Portugal, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Germany and the UK. Topics covered included a waste management workshop, a review of climate change science, an investigation and practical debate on carbon footprinting a live event, presentations on green camping and green catering, presentations on stakeholder communication, an explanation of ISO 20121, two technical forums, a panel on creating a green campaign and a lively debate on ‘how can any event be green’ . On top of this there were visits to a waste sorting centre and a ‘waste to energy’ plant in Bonn – and a gala dinner for delegates in Bonn!
