Powerful Thinking, with the support of the Association of Independent festivals (AIF) and the Association of Festival Organisers (AFO) have launched the second annual industry survey focused on sustainable practices at UK festivals. A year on from the release of the seminal environmental report, The Show Must Go On, and the launch of Festival Vision: 2025, Powerful Thinking will publish a report in December based on the results from this survey, showing the movements in the industry.
Take a few minutes to complete the Industry Green Survey 2016, help Powerful Thinking to track industry progress and shape support for all festivals to move towards more sustainable practices — and get entered into a raffle to win one of five ‘Smart Power Scans’ from Zap Concepts Consultancy — a completely free audit of your festival energy to identify where you can save fuel and money! Plus, a chance to win a free delegate place for the Green Events & Innovations Conference hosted by A Greener Festival in March 2017 at the ILMC.
Please complete the survey by Nov 30th 2016. Winners will be announced December 2016.
The Show Must Go On report, published by Powerful Thinking in November 2015, outlines the environmental impacts of the festival industry and aims to provide a robust basis for an industry-wide action through the Festival Vision: 2025 Pledge — a shared vision for a sustainable future. Over 50 festivals have now committed to Festival Vision: 2025 — you can find out more about the report and take the pledge HERE.
