If you want to know more about sustainable event management Claire O’Neill is the go-to person. O’Neill is the founder of A Greener Festival, a non-profit organisation dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of music festivals and events. Since 2006, the organisation has assessed and accredited over 400 festivals and events worldwide based on their environmental management, as part of the Greener Festival Award program.
Working with a wide range of festivals and events in various management and co-ordination roles for over 10 years, Claire has a vast amount of experience in event management, production, logistics and operations. In this interactive session she will be offering an overview of sustainable event management, touching on a broad range of topics including policy, power, procurement, waste management, water use, traffic and transport, external reach and behavioural change. The workshop aims to frame and define sustainability as the thread that runs throughout the life cycle of an event.
