Festival and Event Sustainability
Hochschule Fresenius, Cologne
11 & 12 April 2014

Greener, smarter, more sustainable – it’s not special interest anymore. GO Group’s motto and core topics are far up on the agenda today. In the five years of its existence the pan-european think-tank brought together hundereds of festivals, scentists, initiatives and suppliers involved in festival and event organisation and helped them exchange about green and sustainability related issues.

But still we GO on, because there is need for this interactive, open and communicative format we have successfully set up as GO Group workshops all over Europe.

Now it’s time for the 6th international GO Group workshop in Cologne.

We kindly invite you to this 2-day seminar at the Hochschule Fresenius (University of Applied Sciences), on April 11 and 12 2016. The workshop is kindly hosted by Hochschule Fresenius Cologne and GreenEvents Europe Conference.

The 6th GO Group workshop for Sustainable Festivals and Events will focus on „Audience psychology“ (day 1) and „social aspects and responsibility“ (day 2).

Look forward to inspiring  presentations,  discussions and case studies from experts and major festivals as well as group workshops on both days!
