In this workshop, tailored for music artists and events, we dive deep into the complex world of measuring, emissions, impact responsibility and different ways to compensate or offset the consequences of our actions.
About this program
Most artists and festivals currently have an unavoidable impact on the climate (and more). The question of when, and if so, how to best take responsibility and offset this impact, is one of the big ones of our time.
With renowned sustainability experts, the help of a visual storyteller and some of the most engaging concrete best-practice examples out there, we’ll navigate this complicated and multifaceted topic. If we work together and everything goes well, we’ll come out at the other end with a beautifully visualized set of clear and practical ground rules ‘when’ and if so ‘how’ to best offset your current unavoidable emissions (and other consequences) of your event or tour. This workshop answers the following questions:
- Is offsetting a good idea? and if so when and how?
- How can we measure our impact on the world around us? How can we quantify it?
- What is out there when it comes to good offsetting programs? And best practices of artists and festivals?
