Music festivals and events contribute to many positive effects for the local communities around them, such as increased tourism and economical growth. But what happens if we start to use them as platforms for sustainability, social innovation and positive change? How can festival organisers take responsibility for the environment, climate change, gender equality, diversity and other sustainability issues? And how can the festivals empower new initiatives for a better world? LiveGreen started as a youth-driven music festival in southern Sweden. Today the organization is a pioneer for sustainable events as well as an arena where hundreds of young people has transformed climate anxiety into climate action. We invite you for an interactive seminar where inspiring stories and practical methods for ecological and social sustainability are mixed with the latest research from the fields of sustainable development and music events.
