Give your live events competencies a green upgrade presented by Future Festival Tools

ADE Green - Chris Johnson (Co-Founder, CEO & Trustee, Ecolibrium), Chiara Badiali (Julie's Bicycle)

Get future-ready, and be the first to experience new tools and take part in testing a groundbreaking new learning experience. In other words: get a sneak preview of the Future Festival Tools.

Chris Johnson (founder Shambala Festival and Chair Vision2025) opens the session with his perspective on how festival organisations may reach beyond the event to inspire change. Each and every one of us, no matter which role in the music industry we may fulfil, has a valuable part to play in meeting the climate crisis. Whether you’re an aspiring event professional, a seasoned production manager looking for an entry-point to action, or a festival manager wanting to brush up on your knowledge for conversations with partners and suppliers, the Future Festival Tools are designed to meet your needs.

Are you eager to step up your game and get a certificate for sustainable event management? Join this learn- and work session and dive deep into the topics of food, energy, mobility, materials, water or strategy and receive a certificate on the spot.

Please sign-up here to attend.

About Future Festival Tools
The ecosystem of sustainable knowledge, collaboration and suppliers in the event sector has slowly been developing over the past years. Where there was little know-how only a decade ago, a great network of organisers, projects and initiatives has emerged by now. In 2021, seven pioneering organisations teamed up to create a new knowledge base: Green Events, Momentum Le LABA, Christopher Johnson, Green Music Initiative, GO Group, Julie's Bicycle, The Nationwide Caterers Association (NCASS), Native Events, YOUROPE and EUEI. Future Festival Tools is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, and provides a set of freely accessible knowledge tools, including self-assessment, inspirational stories from across Europe and an e-learning course.

This program is part of ADE Green. For the full ADE Green program, please check here.
