The Internationally operating not for profit organisation, A Greener Festival (AGF), have teamed up with ADE Green and will bring their training to Amsterdam this October for the first time. The training will run for 2 days at the Nachtlab, and is open to anyone with an interest in developing their understanding and skills for Sustainable Event Management, and those who would like to become assessors of festivals and events on behalf of AGF.

The first 20 registrants to the AGF training will receive a discount to attend ADE Green, which takes place on 18th October in the DeLaMar Theatre, Amsterdam.

The transition to a new economy requires new thinking. It is crucial to highlight and adapt existing processes in our sector via the collective use of each other’s knowledge and technologies. Sustainability, innovation and social change must form an integral part of today’s festival and events policies. The fact that this can be done – without concessions to the visitor experience, or any finger- pointing – has now been proven,” says ADE Green organiser, Carlijn Lindemulder.

Since it’s inception in 2007 AGF have assessed over 400 festivals for their Greener Festival Award scheme across 5 continents, and this year launched the Greener Event Award scheme to include all types of events. The aim is to encourage and share best practice, to celebrate successes raising the profile of environmental issues in the industry, and to help events to improve their environmental impact.

AGF Co Founder Claire O’Neill commented that “We have worked alongside the team behind ADE Green for many years and we are thrilled to be able to coincide our first mainland Europe training with the event this Autumn. Our training always provides a great chance for like-minded professionals to meet, and this is bolstered and amplified by the fact that we can join ADE Green following the training for further networking and inspiration, in the beautiful City of Amsterdam.”
