Festival Vision: 2025

Vision: 2025 is a shared vision for a sustainable outdoor events industry. It was conceived as part of The Show Must Go On report, a festival industry response to the 2015 global climate change talks in Paris.

The Show Must Go On report (2015) outlined the environmental impacts of the festival industry and aimed to provide a robust basis for an industry-wide action. The report launched the Vision: 2025 pledge to bring together festivals that wish to take action to create a sustainable future.

By 2020, over 100 events had pledged to follow the Vision: 20205 strategy to create more sustainable events and the Powerful Thinking Steering Group published the Show Must Go On report edition 2 to update resources and advice. The team behind the report and vision transitioned to being known as the Vision: 2025 Steering Group – with Powerful Thinking remaining the valued energy efficiency expert and member within the group.
