Sustainable Events

There are literally hundreds of small, medium and large events and festivals that take place in our region every year.  These include country shows, music and art festivals.  The following guides may be useful in integrating more sustainable features into your local events.

Sustainable Event Resources

EPA Victoria has developed the Event Ecological Footprint Calculator.  It can help organisers plan a low Footprint event by:

  • highlighting the main impacts of an event
  • helping to identify actions to avoid and reduce the impacts – for organisers, delegates, host venues and exhibitors
  • helping organisers plan and achieve a carbon neutral event

The Sustainable Living Foundation has developed The Sustainable Events Planner.  This is a simple online resource to help plan and run a sustainable event.

Sustainable Events Training

Sustaining our Towns hosted a sustainable events training course in Narooma on 27 and 28 February 2012.  The training was subsidised by the NSW Government through its Green Skills program, and was run by Green Shoot Pacific.
