with Gaja Brecelj, Umanotera
Sustainable development is accepted in principle as the only development paradigm for the future, ensuring a good quality of life for present and future generations. If we are to survive as humanity, we need to start taking into account the limits of the planet and significantly reduce our impact on the environment. The organisation of events, especially those with a high communication potential, has a major role to play in (not) achieving a sustainable development model. Whatever your motives – expectations of sponsors, local communities, participants; legal requirements; social norms; your own social and environmental consciousness – you are invited to embark on the path of sustainable development and sustainable events.
By joining Gaja’s session, you will find out why small steps are no longer enough. She will answer the following questions:
- Where and how to start?
- How to deliver events in an environmentally sustainable way?
- How to plan and take action?
- How to communicate it?
- And how to choose the actions that will really bring about the necessary changes?
