Green Festivals & Events – Further Resources

General Resource Files

The documents that you can access here are designed to support your implementation of a more environmentally responsible approach to running your festival. There is a wealth of information available and over time we will aim to sort it into more manageable sections and add more as we collect it.

What is important is that you start the process – and then build on it over a number if years. This works for annual festivals – with one-off festivals it is more of a challenge and the principles must be included within the festival programme from the start – or at least a set of specific targets, such as;

– Waste Management Programme

– Water Management Programme

– Renewable Energy Purchase
