Festival Vision:2025 aims to bring the whole festival industry together around the vision for a sustainable events. The project will provide comprehensive, free-to-use, practical sustainability resources and advice in key areas, including a second-edition of the seminal environmental report The Show Must Go On and fund a campaign to make sure the information reaches the decision makers who can implement the new strategies.
It’s now 5 years since the 1st edition of the Show Must Go On report was launched (pictured) and over 70 festivals have take the Festival Vision:2025 pledge and are actively working to cut their impacts. The Show Must Go On report has become the foundation for the sector’s discourse about sustainability. It is typically a source for facts for articles about sustainability in the industry, and has been downloaded thousands of times. Festival organisers have repeatedly cited it as the most read environmental resource in surveys.
“This is more than resources – it’s a movement. It’s time to act decisively on climate change – we have the opportunity for the festival industry to come together as companies, events and individuals to co-fund the best possible up-to-date resources, share information and support each other, to catalyse action on travel, waste, plastics, energy and emissions.” Chris Johnson (Powerful Thinking, Shambala Festival)
The Crowdfunder campaign will be an opportunity for events, companies and individuals to be part of an ambitious vision and to position their brands in a responsible context. Find out how to get involved ahead of the live date HERE.
