AGFs Claire O’Neill speaks to Music Declares Emergency, Canada

AGF CEO, Claire O’Neill, will be joining a stellar panel at a Music Climate Sumit on 21st October, organised by Music Declares Emergency, Canada.

The panel will be discussing “Green Touring & Live Performance“, presented by Live Nation Canada.

With initiatives like Julie’s Bicycle, A Greener Festival, Reverb and Green Music Australia, there are many groups being vocal and visionary in a collective effort to recognize environmental impacts and sustainability issues within the sector. From campaigns to ban plastic to tent recycling, green power to living walls and roofs, festivals, venues, agents and promoters are just starting to join the conversation in Canada.

ACT in Quebec and the Hillside festival in Ontario has shown leadership but there is much more than can be and needs to be done. This panel considers the advances that have been made, the targets that have been announced and the strategies that are necessary to realize a zero carbon live music sector.

Claire will be joined on the panel by:


Devon Hardy, Creative Green Tools, Canada

Marie Zimmerman, Hillside

Katherine Carleton, Orchestras Canada
