Green Event Guidelines for Organising Face-to-Face Events in the Academic Sector

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

One of the outputs of the first phase of the Greening Events project was a synthesis of existing guidelines and checklists to help organisations reduce the sustainability impacts of their face-to-face events. Typically these guidelines have been produced to support a particular organisation or event but there are some generic principles and ideas which will be of use to anyone planning an event.  The  Green Event Guidelines document should ideally be read with the Rethinking Events report which will help you to question the need and utility of events you are organising.

We will be continuing to update this document as part of Greening Events II and therefore would welcome any feedback or queries you may have.
