Climate Week is Britain’s biggest climate change campaign, inspiring a new wave of action to create a sustainable future. As part of Climate Week, we are running our GREEN EVENTS & INSPIRATIONS conference at the ILMC music conference in central London on Thursday March 7th. The Agenda is almost complete, with confirmed panels and presentations on food waste, camp site waste and the ‘Love Your Tent‘ campaign, sustainable power at festivals, managing festival waste, the 2012 research in the audience’s views on green initiatives at festivals by Bucks New University, a special focus on Finland, The Greener Festival Awards scheme 2013 and the carbon cost of ticketing.
