The Powerful Thinking Guide 2017, launched earlier this year, will be translated into Dutch by Green Events Netherlands and hosted on a new database on sustainability for Dutch festival organisers created by Lab Vlieland. The translation will be announced at the ADE Green conference later this month.
The Guide was first published in 2012 and updated this year to provide event professionals with up-to-date knowledge and practical resources to help manage temporary energy smartly, reducing environmental impacts and fuel bills. It is arranged as a collection of modular resources, factsheets and case studies that are also available online. The edition is European in focus, reflecting both the progress being made across Europe on this topic, and the partners involved with the guide’s content.
“Green Events Nederland is very pleased that we could help to increase the accessibility to the Powerful Thinking guide by translating this valuable resource into the Dutch language.” Green Events NL Paul Schurink
Now in its fourth edition, the ADE green conference returns to De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam on October 19th for a day of creativity, practical workshops on sustainability, technological showcases, interactive speakers, debates and inspiring speakers from across the music event industry.
Sustainability and social change are becoming ever more important for festival organisers. Event organisers and artists are becoming more and more aware of the platform they have and the message they can transmit to their audience, and this shows in the initiatives they support and the change of policies and production methods at festivals. ADE Green brings together brings together promoters, artists, suppliers, policymakers, thinkers, journalists, and more to amplify the industry’s movement towards sustainability and social change: from inspiration to practical action.
Representatives from Roskilde (DK), India’s Longest Guest List (IN), DGTL (NL), Welcome to the Future Festival (NL), Boom Festival (PT) and Ieperfest (BE) will share their experience and plans on how they intend to take action for the future at this year’s ADE Green.
ADE Green is part of industry event Amsterdam Dance Event and is a collaboration between ID&T and ADE, and is supported by Green Events Nederland, Green Music Initiative, Julie’s Bicycle and Open House.
